Short Description for Orff Day by Day Helping teachers with Orff projects, this title answers such practical questions as where to begin, how much to expect to cover in a class and how to encourage children to develop their own ideas. It outlines nine projects, taking the teacher step-by-step through a process designed to teach basic music, improvisation and creative movement.
This huge unit includes 11 lessons in 4 sections from Orff for Beginners. There's mallet exploration, Orff exploration, and two beginning Orff pieces. This is how we start teaching Orff from the very first day. If you teach the whole unit, your students will have a great understanding of how to play xylophones correctly, and how to have a great steady beat on the instruments by the end.
