These strategies and activities link the Orff Schulwerk approach and John Feierabend's First Steps in Music methodology.

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!
