Modal Mosaic
By Robert A. Amchin
Book and CD-ROM
52 pages
Grades 4 - 8

These short modal pieces with complete Orff process lesson plans and  suggestions for student compositions can kick start students' composition and improvisation skills. Some have easy mixed meters. Using the pieces as models, students learn them, expand them, and create new pieces based on them.

Audio tracks, interactive visuals, and listening maps for teaching extensions are on the included CD-ROM.

While written for Orff instruments and recorders, these arrangements can be adapted for other instrumental settings without Orff instruments.

The book could be a supplemental text for Orff level courses.
