Make a Joyful Sound
By Don Dupont and Brian Hiller
57 pages   

A Celebration of Orff Schulwerk Media.

Thirty-nine processed activities for elementary grades (easy to challenging) celebrating Orff-Schulwerk media: Body Percussion, Speech, Singing, Unpitched Percussion, Barred Instruments, Recorder and Movement. Activities feature a step-by-step process, a performance outline and suggestions for going further with the media focus from each activity. Classroom Chronicles interspersed throughout the book reveal anecdotal insights into how the authors have used the activities in their classrooms.

The visuals in the lessons may be reproduced for a single classroom use. This collection of original, traditional and world music songs, games and movement activities will satisfy many needs.
