Prepare for learning an instrument
Skills learned in Orff classes are an ideal preparation for learning an instrument, and are recommended to be taken prior to, and in conjunction with, instrument study.
What is Orff?
In this approach to learning, developed by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman, musicianship is built through singing, playing instruments, speech and movement. Active music-making is the core of this approach, through which learners experience and then internalize musical concepts and ideas. Children who are regularly encouraged to create and develop their own ideas are uniquely prepared to solve problems in other contexts.
