You Can Walk…You Can Talk…You Can Orff! uses walking and speech as the basis for musical development. As humans walk, we keep a steady beat. As we talk along with a beat, our speech becomes rhythmic. From there, we just need to add melody for music-making. This book offers step by step lessons to develop music classes and skills for students through movement, and playing instruments. Basic Orff pedagogy is explained with supporting lessons. For anyone wishing to learn about Orff pedagogy, the ideas presented here offer success, and ways to create and develop your own ideas-from walking, and talking, to Orff-ing!
