These strategies and activities link the Orff Schulwerk approach and John Feierabend's First Steps in Music methodology. The authors give classroom-ready activities relating to each of the eight parts of the First Steps in Music approach: Pitch Exploration/Vocal Warm-Up, Fragment Singing, Simple Songs, Arioso, Song Tales, Movement Exploration/Warm-Up, Movement for Form and Expression, and Movement with Beat Motions. Each section begins with a brief narrative describing the integration of First Steps in Music and the Orff approach and then gives a variety of lessons and activities.

Includes a set of twelve complete lesson plans, supplemental repertoire, and an expanded section on Arioso.

Whether you are a teacher using the Orff approach who is looking to augment your teaching or if you are a First Steps in Music teacher wishing to connect to the best of Orff, this book is for you!
