My students need Orff instruments in order to learn instrumentation and how to read music.
I'm sure you all remember music class as a child. One of the most exciting and fun lessons is playing on Orff instruments! Children love to be hands on and play instruments but you can't play them if you don't have them!
My students love music class and only get to have class an hour a week.
Most of my students come to class with behavior problems and/or at low learning levels. However, in music class most of our students flourish! They love to play instruments, read music, sing, and do movement based activities. I teach Kindergarten through Fifth Grade Music so these Orff instruments would benefit each grade in a different way.
My students love to play instruments and unfortunately the majority are not able to take lessons outside of school. It is our job to teach the students as much as possible during music class and that means they need to be hands on so they truly learn and understand the material being taught. With these Orff Instruments, our students will be able to not only learn about instrumentation but create and compose music, learn to read music, and so much more! This would be incredibly beneficial for them and is needed in every elementary music class.
All students deserve the chance to be involved in music and learn to play instruments.
Orff instrumentation is the stepping stone to learning percussion instruments. We need these instruments and we need your help!
