Teaching the Blues in the Orff Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Emphasizing fundamental blues elements such as call and response, swing, and the minor third allows students to identify these elements in everything from church sermons to rock and roll and to use them confidently in music-making. We will explore strategies for teaching these elements using Orff classroom resources — barred instruments, recorders, ukuleles, singing and movement.

Please bring a ukulele with you to the session if possible. Other instruments will be provided.
