Orff Schulwerk - Ages 4-5

Open to ages 4 - 5, Child + Caregiver. This class is a great step towards preparing students for piano or individual instrument instruction! The Orff Approach is a developmental approach that combines music, movement, drama, and speech into lessons that are similar to child's world of play. It uses very rudimentary forms of everyday activity for the purpose of music creation by music students. The Orff Approach is a "child-centered way of learning" music education that treats music as a language addressing challenging concepts through a gentle and friendly approach. Instruments include miniature xylophones, marimbas, glockenspiels, and metallophones, different sized drums, and non- pitched percussion instruments. The Orff approach also requires that children sing, chant, clap, dance, pat, and snap fingers along to melodies and rhythms.
