Based on the models presented in Orff and Keetman’s Music for Children volumes, this book is a must-have resource for teachers of the elemental style. Over the course of the book, the reader is guided from the foundational concepts of basic rhythmic cells and elemental forms to the construction of melodies and static accompaniments in the pentatonic and diatonic modes. Supplemental resources include a glossary of frequently used terminology in composition for the elemental instrumentarium along with practical and technical ranges of the various instruments.
