One-A-Day Warm-Ups for Orff Instruments

Playing instruments is one of the most favorite music classroom activities. Just as you would take time to warm up your voice, these simple traditional songs and patterns give students a chance to warm up their playing skills by investing 5-10 minutes each class period and by focusing on posture, technique and style. By using the Sing-Along Guide, you can easily choose from the 30 warm-ups (in specific keys, chord progressions and/or patterns) which you choose to develop and utilize as accompaniments to the 25 traditional songs (also included). Students who struggle with beat will greatly improve as they begin with simple one-chord patterns where they learn to feel and hear the pulse and gradually progress to adding body percussion, additional parts and then instruments.
