WHAT WE TEACH
Orff Schulwerk Program

Originally developed by the German composer Carl Orff, Our specialist program for children between the ages of four to seven years focuses on developing the musical instincts of the child.

Children learn to play with instruments they can easily manipulate using their small and still developing hands and fingers e.g. Recorders, Shakers, Triangles, Glockenspiels, Bongos etc.

They are also exposed to the sounds of various instruments and are prepared to take an informed choice when it comes to finally choosing an instrument for specific training.

Children learn through doing, exploring and improvising. They are active participants in an integrated and guided process which allows for differing musical abilities. In the orff approach no child is neglected.

The program combines the elements of speech, rhythm, movement, dance and song. At the heart of all this is improvisation – the instinct children have to create their own melodies, to explore their imagination.

The Orff philosophy is based on solid pedagogical principles. A structured sequential development of knowledge and skills encourages joyful participation, creativity and personal musical growth.
