Orff We Go! A Creative Music and Movement Experience
- OUTLINE -
Children will be introduced to music education the Orff Schulwerk way. The Orff method is a way of teaching children about music that engages their mind and body through a mixture of singing, dancing, acting and the use of percussion instruments (i.e. drums, claves, shakers, xylophones, glockenspiels). Children will be learning musical concepts using different modalities (singing, chants, dance, movement, dramatisation and use of instruments). This is a developmentally appropriate methodology that involves a child’s natural sense of play in improvisation and composition. An OPTIONAL Teachers Professional Development workshop is available. This workshop serves to equip teachers with strategies and skills to conduct music and movement sessions confidently in their classroom. Elements of Music and Movement will be reinforced with practical hands-on activities.
- LEARNING OBJECTIVES -
Children will be able to: 1. Identify elements of music (Rhythm, Beat, Tempo. Dynamics, Form, Pitch). 2. Sing confidently accompanied by actions/ body percussion/ percussion instruments. 3. Play simple ostinato patterns to accompany songs. 4. Find creative ways to work on body percussion and instruments to the song/ music. 5. Participate in Call and Response songs 6.
