    I loved the video, it was so professional, I can see why the parents and family members enjoyed seeing their students perform. I enjoy the Orff Schulwerk lessons sent to my school emails from time to time. Thank you for sharing your creativity and lessons :} Nancy

    Can you start a musically inclined 18-month old toddler on an Orff instrument?
    And if so, how do you suggest doing this?

      Hi Stephanie! We applaud your desire to encourage music making at such a young age, but we would not recommend starting a toddler on this type of instrument other than free play. For a child so young, we suggest musical toys at home as well as local early childhood music programs that will allow him/her to practice music making in a group. – Your friends at Teaching With Orff

    I promote Orff approach for preschool children in my community. May I use this video?

      Absolutely! You are welcome to use this video as well as our classroom in action video (linked in post above) to promote and advocate for your music program.
