Instrument Explorers is an Orff-based early childhood music class, taught by certified Orff instructors, that introduces the joys of music making in a fun and educationally stimulating environment.
Through the use of various instruments, songs, movement, and games children will be introduced to the building blocks of instrumental and ensemble playing. Students will explore a variety of instruments including glockenspiel, xylophone, metallophone, ukulele, recorder, hand percussion, and world music instruments.
So what is the Orff approach to music education? Developed by composer and music educator Carl Orff along with his colleague Gunhild Keetman, the Orff approach is a well-known and established holistic approach to music and education based on the belief that all children possess innate musical talent and only need to be encouraged for it to grow. The Orff approach exposes children to music through singing, rhythm, improvisation, experimentation, ensemble playing, movement, and dance. Students will organically learn musical concepts by playing, experiencing, and sharing music making.
