In the WRE music classroom, children explore music through the Orff Schulwerk (or Orff for short) method of music education. This method is based on things children like to do: sing, chant rhymes, clap, dance, and keep a beat on anything close by. The students use these as a means for learning music by imitating and creating it first, and then reading and writing it later—the same way we all learned our own language.
In addition, it is my goal to teach your children much more than just music - I want your children to practice real life skills in my classroom. Responsibility, integrity, team work, leadership, respectfulness, and honesty are just a few of the traits we practiced each week in the music classroom.
