Tamara O’Brien & Mark Carthew
Includes lesson plans, a DVD workshop and a CD
Utilising speech, rhyme, rhythm, body percussion, movement, melody, tuned and untuned percussion … and lots of exploration and improvisation … the delightful rhymes and songs and the infectious activities lead to joyful performance.
Each unit is clearly set out and steps the teacher and students through an Orff-based approach to exploring music.
Activities are supported by CD tracks (Flying Man, Fiddle Diddle Dee, Terracotta Pot, Little Brown Owl, Dinosaur) and filmed demonstrations on DVD.
Little to no set-up time required.
