During Thursday Orff Ensemble classes, fifth-grade students have the opportunity to use their creativity to improvise and compose their own melodies. Using an already existing body percussion piece, the students transferred those rhythms to our Orff Instruments. The form of this piece is ABA. The A section was already established, and students were asked to compose a B section with the guidelines: start on E and end on A. You will see the B sections performed as a Duet, and the music will appear in the corner. Enjoy!
In music class, each third grader played “Fuzzy Wuzzy Was A Bear” with Orff instruments in a variety of pentatonic modes.
Watch this video and enjoy Mr. Wallace and students making this classic song come to life in new, magical ways!
