One Cold and Frosty Morning: a song and Orff activity

This huge unit includes 11 lessons in 4 sections from Orff for Beginners. There's mallet exploration, Orff exploration, and two beginning Orff pieces. This is how we start teaching Orff from the very first day. If you teach the whole unit, your students will have a great understanding of how to play xylophones correctly, and how to have a great steady beat on the instruments by the end.

First Year Orff Exploration

Orff instruments - easy "catch a falling star" I enjoy watching this.  They have very poor mallet technique but it looks fun!
