The Orff - Shulwerk Method
The Orff approach to music eduction is a creative teaching method that combines all aspects of the performing arts. A sense of play and active music-making occur through the child's total involvement in rhythm, movement, speech, chant, mime, drama, singing, playing instruments and improvisation. It's a learning setting in which each child's creativity is nurtured and self-esteem is built up.
This is music for the whole person and is related to every area of the child's school experience.
