About The Take Orff with Recorder Product Range
‘Take Orff with Recorder’ is a collection of classroom recorder arrangements based on the Orff Schulwerk approach. It includes original pieces from the ‘Welcome to Music’ series adapted and modified for recorder in various styles including jazz, blues, latin, reggae, calypso etc. All pieces have opportunities for recorder improvisation and can combine speech, body percussion, singing, movement, dance and percussion instruments. The repertoire is applicable for 8-12 year olds.
The teacher’s kit consists of 2 CDs – recorder/vocal CD, Baktraks CD and a teacher’s manual. The manual includes full percussion arrangements, guitar chords, lyrics and individual recorder and percussion scores for classroom use with photocopy permission. Various ‘Orff’ techniques are used such as imitation, echo, ostinato, canon and question and answer to help make learning the recorder easy, fun and accessible to all.
