General Music

Using the Orff approach, students will learn about rhythm, melody, harmony, texture, form and other elements of music. Students will learn these concepts by speaking, chanting, singing, dancing, movement, acting and playing instruments. These learned concepts become springboards for further creative pursuits such as improvisation or composing their own music.

The Orff approach is a method of teaching children about music that engages their mind and body through a mixture of singing, dancing, acting and the use of percussion instruments. For instance, the Orff method often uses instruments like xylophones, metallophones, and glockenspiels.

The Orff approach is a way of introducing and teaching children about music on a level that they can easily comprehend.Musical concepts are learned through singing, chanting, dance, movement, drama and the playing of percussion instruments. Improvisation, composition and a child’s natural sense of play are encouraged.
