An Introduction to Teaching Orff Instrument Skills.
by Jane Frazee.
Orff barred instruments have put the job of playing ensemble music into the hands of students in classrooms around the world. The magical sounds of these instruments are available to everyone — even without special training. However, a step-by-step approach to mallet instruments encourages instrumental facility and promotes beautiful sounds. “Playing Together” is the first book to offer the systematic guidance you need to help your students develop secure mallet skills with ease.
In this book you will find a sequenced program for building instrumental technique that begins with sound effects, proceeds to playing accompaniments, and –finally– melodies. Skills are introduced in a carefully sequenced presentation of authentic and artistic musical materials: folk melodies, Renaissance music, composed pieces, and standard Orff-Schulwerk literature.
