The models presented in Orff and Keetman's Music for Children volumes are the basis for this essential resource for teachers of the elemental style. This book guides the reader from the foundational concepts of basic rhythmic cells and elemental forms to the construction of melodies and static accompaniments in the pentatonic and diatonic modes. Additional resources include a glossary of frequently used compositional terminology for the elemental instrumentarium as well as practical and technical ranges of the various instruments.
