Pieces and Processes
Music for Children series
By Steven Calantropio
60 pages 

A collection of 12 original songs, exercises, instrumental pieces and arrangements that provide fresh examples of elemental music. The works represent a wide variety of styles which draw upon the musical models of the Orff Schulwerk for inspiration. Step-by-step procedures for teaching melodic patterns, rhythmic patterns, harmonic schemes, small structural forms and simple improvisations are shown. Each piece has a detailed teaching procedure designed to give music educators a collection of instructional techniques that can be used in all aspects of their work. A "Process Teaching Toolbox" organizes these techniques by musical element. Some pieces are meant for performance situations, a few are arrangements of folk material and some correspond with the organization of Music for Children, the 5 volumes that comprise the basic teaching materials of Orff Schulwerk.
