People Involved: 

This publication includes 12 creative teaching models for pieces from Orff-Schulwerk, Music for Children, by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman. These sequenced pedagogical lessons lead children between the ages of four and ten on an imaginative journey that introduces pieces in different keys, exploring pentatonic, major, minor, and modal scales.

Clear musical notation, audio examples, reproducible visual aids, and tips for playing music on Orff instruments aid lesson preparation and implementation.
