Instruments We Use
In our lessons children play pitched and unpitched percussion instruments that provide them an age appropriate experience to master musical concepts.
Learn About Orff Instruments
The instruments pictured in the slide show are called Orff instruments and were created by Carl Orff, a German composer and music educator. Using these instruments students learn
basic concepts that prepare them for subsequent musical instruction lessons. These instruments are perfectly suited to guide young music makers. Their sound is high quality and they invite participation. Children can master making beautiful music with these instruments even in the first lesson and without special training. Bars that don't fit into the scale of the song are removed and children improvise on the remaining bars. Exploring music with these instruments gradually trains their ears to discern appropriate musical sounds while they gain confidence in their music-making abilities.
