Diddle Fiddle is inspired by the little gems of Orff Schulwerk original source material written by Gunild Keetman. BethAnn Hepburn and Roger Sams created this lesson imitating Keetman’s instrumental canons. This lesson takes a literacy-based approach to teaching the piece, but you could also teach this melody through rote processes. It is the kind of instrumental piece that once the students have mastered it they will want to play it again and again. We think adding movement canon makes it even more exciting. Enjoy!
