Play Along With Me: Erstes Spiel an Xylophon as a Primer for all Ages

We will play through and experience the exquisite curriculum that mirrors
and prepares the more advanced content of the Volumes of Music for
Children. Bring your copy of Erstes Spiel am Xylophon, and fill it with
annotations that will serve you throughout your career, in all kinds of teaching
contexts.  You will receive interactive lesson slides, composition prompts, and
an understanding of the scope and sequence of curriculum embedded in this
gem. It can become your handbook, along with Elementaria, for teaching
elemental music, composition and music literacy in their earliest stages, no
matter how old your beginning students are. We will explore
Keetman’s suggestions for teaching music literacy and how this book provides
musical settings for this.

Martha M. O’Hehir earned master’s degrees in music education (Shenandoah
Conservatory) and educational leadership (Johns Hopkins Univ). She completed three
levels of OS Teacher Education(Univ of St Thomas) and master classes (Univ of St
Thomas and Memphis), served multiple terms on the editorial boards of The Orff
Echo and Reverberations, and helped write the first PLN on Elementaria. Over her 40-
year career, she taught high school religion and liturgical music, pre-kindergarten
through high school general/choral music, elementary gifted and general education, and
wrote new curricula for each of those fields. As a certified music practitioner and
clinician for the Music for Healing and Transition Program (MHTP), she applied the
Schulwerk pedagogy to teaching adults to improvise on their various instruments at the
bedside. She has returned to The Echo editorial board and loves to find new
applications for the Schulwerk.
