What is Orff

The Orff Schulwerk, or simply the Orff Approach, is one of several developmental approaches including the Kodaly Method, Dalcroze Eurhythmics, and Suzuki Method used in music education. It combines music, movement, drama, and speech into lessons that are similar to child's world of play. It was developed by the German composer Carl Orff (1895–1982) and colleague Gunild Keetman during the 1920s. Carl Orff worked until the end of his life to continue the development and spread of his teaching method. The Orff Approach is now used throughout the world to teach students in a natural and comfortable environment. The term "schulwerk" is German for (literally) "school work" or "schooling", in this regard in the area of music.

Foundations
The Orff Approach of music education uses very rudimentary forms of everyday activity for the purpose of music creation by music students. The Orff Approach is a "child-centered way of learning" music education that treats music as a basic system like language and believes that just as every child can learn language without formal instruction so can every child learn music by a gentle and friendly approach. It is often called "Elemental Music making" because the materials needed to teach students are "basic, natural, and close to a child’s world of thought and fantasy".

In order for the Orff Approach to effectively work teachers must create an atmosphere that is similar to a child’s world of play. This allows participating children to feel comfortable learning a new and often abstract musical skill, greater exploration of a musical instrument or musical skill, and keeps a student from feeling evaluated or judged by his or her peers and teachers. A child participating in an Orff classroom does not feel the pressure of performing that is often in tandem with music because every student in an Orff classroom is treated as an equal, even when performing a solo. The Orff Approach is used by teachers to encourage their students to enjoy making music as individuals as well as in groups. Children realize the joys of group co-ordination and cohesion. It also involves the participation of other adults and parents in music making. Thus it brings the role of parent in child education in a central position. From a teacher’s aspect Orff-Schulwerk is also a process of breaking down each activity into its simplest form and then presenting those steps one at a time to eventually become a completed performance.

In the Orff Approach "all concepts are learned by ‘doing'".
Students of the Orff Approach learn music by experiencing and participating in the different musical lessons and activities. These lessons stimulate not only the paraxial concepts of music like rhythm and tempo, but also the aesthetic qualities of music. “Orff activities awaken the child’s total awareness” and “sensitize the child’s awareness of space, time, form, line, color, design, and mood- aesthetic data that musicians are acutely aware of, yet find hard to explain to musical novices".

Unlike Simply Music or the Suzuki Method, the Orff Schulwerk approach is not a method. There is no systematic stepwise procedure to be followed. There are fundamental principles, clear models and basic processes that all intuitive and creative teachers use to guide their organization of musical ideas.

Instruments and tools


Orff considered the percussive rhythm as a natural basic form of human expression. Carl Orff and colleague Gunild Keetmanco-composed much of the music for the five volume series,Music for Children. These volumes, first published in 1950, are still available and used today. Music played on Orff instruments is often very simple and easy to play even for first time musicians.
Some of the instruments within the approach include miniature xylophonesmarimbasglockenspiels, and metallophones; all of which have removable bars, resonating columns to project the sound, and are easily transported and stored. Orff teachers also use different sized drumsrecorders, and non- pitched percussion instruments "to round out the songs that are sung and played". The Orff approach also requires that children sing, chant, clap, dance, pat, and snap fingers along to melodies and rhythms.

Each instrument has a different effect, then how to choose the instrument for the baby, the parents became confused.
Baby Musical Toys

 Parents give their children choose the instrument, pay attention to the following points:


1, the child's preferences for the children to choose the instrument First, parents should respect the child's choice, to respect the child's decision, not a mandatory requirement child learn a musical instrument.

2, according to the child's physiological conditions are selected musical instruments for the children to instrument, it is not a simple choice, it is sometimes the instrument will choose the right person. Many innate physiological conditions do not allow them to learn some musical instruments, then even if love and love to no avail. For example, the long, slender fingers for piano; Qi teeth lips thin for orchestra; fingertips Cuyuan suitable erhu violin or the like. Parents know their children's interests after, according to the child's own conditions, the choice for the children to buy the kind of musical instrument.
 
3, piano class is more suitable for children compared to other instruments, the piano class is more suitable for children. Because the keyboard-type musical instrument not only exercise the flexibility of the fingers, but also exercise the child's overall fit ability and coordination. Learning piano class, the children will be more stable. Accurate pitch sense, as these instruments have a fixed pitch. If the child is determined to learn the keyboard instrument category, parents may wish to give their children purchase a suitable instrument, should not be used to replace the toy piano practice to use, it will affect the child's hearing and intonation.

4, learning the music of stringed erhu hearing requirements, like a violin bow music no fixed pitch, hearing the children is very high. If your child is hard of hearing, it is difficult to grasp the accuracy of pitch, learning of such instruments is very difficult. Parents can imitate the lives of their children for a variety of voices to determine the child's hearing. And when parents buy for their children this kind of instrument for children to practice piano is the best choice, the adult children of instrument size does not fit, do not use them smoothly.
