Elemental Music: Doing more with less
This workshop will primarily focus on how a well sequenced Orff classroom can achieve music literacy based concepts and foster greater student independence using only the bare minimum of repertoire. Come see how you can sequence a single song or rhyme from Kindergarten through Grade 5 and keep growing musical understanding. Participants will also experience strategies to create successful improvisation and composition experiences.
