Orff Orff Orff!

Just finished a 2 week intensive Orff training!  I'm flabbergasted with the amount of resources I gained and am itching to get back to school!

Orff is all about hands on!  Hands on rhythm, hands on instruments, hands on melodies, improvisation and more!  I'm so excited to watch my students dive deeper into our musical concepts and expand through creativity!

One of my most favorite parts of the Orff approach is taking children's literature and allowing students to add sound effects, movement, interpretation, melodies, etc!  My next project, then, is going to be scanning a few books into my computer and creating presentations that I can read from, but the students have a better view of pictures/details.  Plus, then I'll have free hands to add my own background music while we read!  I can't wait for the kids to come back!!!
