Orff-Schulwerk approach advocates music learning through play, and uses activities such as singing, chanting of rhymes, body percussion, improvisation, instrumental playing and movement to experience and learn music concepts. The process, more than the product, allows children to play, create, initiate and demonstrate what they know, understand and apply. The process of teaching and learning in this method includes: Observe, Imitate, Experience, Identify, and Experiment/Explore and Create. Students need to be prepared to come back for the practical assessment which is held outside of the 6 week sessions.
