The Orff Schulwerk, or simply the Orff Approach, is a developmental approach used in music education. It combines music, movement, drama, and speech into lessons that are similar to child’s world of play. The Orff approach is a method of teaching children about music that engages their mind and body through a mixture of singing, dancing, acting and the use of percussion instruments. For instance, the Orff method often uses instruments like xylophones, metallophones, and glockenspiels.A key characteristic of this approach is that lessons are presented with an element of play, which helps the children learn at their own level of understanding.The Orff method can also be referred to as Orff-Schulwerk, Orff approach, or “Music for Children.”
