The First Grade Music Class!

082214When McGuffey students move from kindergarten to first grade, they graduate from Kindermusik class to an Orff Method music class. Carl Orff is the composer of Carmina Burana  who developed a method of teaching music that goes hand in hand with the Montessori philosophy. This week the brand new first graders learned how working as a group creatively can be more interesting and fun than working solo, how to move to the beat of different rhythms played on a drum, and that the voice can tell a story without using words.
