Term 4 grade 3&4 students will be creatively engaged in small and whole class Orff ensemble sessions. Carl Orff was a famous German composer and music pedagogue. He developed an approach to music education that integrates Speech, Singing, Movement and instruments to teach the elements of music. Xylophones, metallophones, Glockenspiels, as well as other untuned percussion instruments are fundamental to the Orff approach for their simplicity which helps facilitate student success and creativity. Grade 3&4 students will learn a series of short songs that will also be performed as a whole class ensemble. This experience will allow the students to build on their knowledge of music through doing. That is, creating, making and performing.
