    Recorder Within the Orff Approach

    Recorder Within the Orff Approach

    Today we're continuing our series about the Orff Approach and sharing about recorders. I'm sharing three original recorder pieces that I've used with my students to teach specific concepts such as BAG, creating 4-beat phrases, composition, playing a C-diatonic scale, and performing in a 2, 3, or 4 part canon. The songs are:

    1. Beginnings: 4m17s - 14m52s
    2. Carefree: 14m53s - 22m57s
    3. Canon in C: 22m58s - 26m17s

    Drumming Within the Orff Approach

    Drumming Within the Orff Approach

    I love how engaging drumming is for all students. Incorporating the 'say' and 'play' parts of the Orff Approach while teaching drumming can make it really effective. Speech is a huge part of helping students play rhythmically. In this episode I'm sharing three lesson ideas for using speech to guide students in learning drum pieces.

    The three pieces are:
    1 - Apple Tree
    2 - Galloping Round the Track
    3 - Ti-Tika Drum

    Many of Walt’s pieces are my students' favorites (and mine too). I’m thrilled that he’s here to share about marimba ensembles, process in teaching pieces, and improvisation. We also talk about what to consider when arranging pop music pieces for marimba ensembles.

    Music Learning Theory with Dr. Kathy Liperote

    Music Learning Theory with Dr. Kathy Liperote

    In this episode Dr. Kathy Liperote shares an overview of Music Learning Theory (MLT) including information about the importance of audiation, how tonal and rhythmic patterns guide students to understanding music through neutral syllables and solfege - both tonally and rhythmic, and perceiving and performing macro and micro beats. It is near impossible to explain the full extent of any approach so this is a representation of some of the elements found within MLT.
