I've Got a Song in Baltimore
Folk Songs of North American and the British Isles
Music for Children series
By Matt McCoy
48 pages

A collection of arrangements of folk songs from North America and the British Isles that were conceived as performance pieces for children's chorus with Orff instrument accompaniment. For teachers new to Orff Schulwerk, suggestions for preparing the instrumental parts are included. Many of the accompaniment patterns are prepared through speech and/or body percussion and then transferred to instruments at a later stage. This collection may be used in conjunction with Playing Together (item 832501) and Pieces and Processes (item 824033).

I took my Orff Level 2 from Matt McCoy, the author of this book and, since he was such a great teacher and I loved his materials, I thought it would be a good buy.

Matt McCoy taught Orff level 1 when I took the course- and I love his ideas so I'm sure I will enjoy using his book for my own classes.
