I needed some Orff arrangements to complement my Kodaly songs, so this looked like the way to go.

As a general music teacher, I have used and enjoyed the GamePlan series of books. However, some students in my school attend general music as much as 2 hours a week, and we have been quickly burning through the gameplan activities. I am planning on using this book to supplement my current lessons and plans

I'm needing something to refresh myself on the Orff method until I can attend a workshop. Will this book tell me how to use each instrument?
