Also known as the Orff Method, Orff Approach, or Music for Children; it is a way of introducing and teaching children about music on a level that they can easily comprehend. Musical concepts are learned through singing, chanting, dance, movement, drama and the playing of percussion instruments. Improvisation, composition, and a child's natural sense of play are encouraged. The Summer Orff Levels Courses are an intense two-week long study of the Orff Process. Students are expected to complete composition and theory homework, in addition to classes in movement and recorder pedagogy. All three levels must be taken for the teachers to be certified in Orff-Schulwerk.
