COURSE BACKGROUND AND COURSE OVERVIEW:
ORFF education stands an important place in children education. It is about the rhythmical intelligence and harmony of a child. So, with this education model, the identifying of the intelligence of a child with the music and instruments would be easier. Then, that child’s harmony between his body, movement, dance, and music is identified. This education model was founded by the Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman. It is not just music education. It is about the physical balance of a child, mental improvement, verbal skills and their improvement, artistic improvement, etc.
Then, the education methods and techniques in the shape of a game will be introduced. Then the first instruments will be:
-The empty bottles
-The wooden pieces
-The dried buds
From these instruments, firstly we hear only random voices. Then, these voices turn into tunes and songs in some basic forms. Then, these tunes also turn into longer tunes. In this point, the children’s reactions should be analyzed in terms of their communication skills.
In this education model, the children should read the music and its tunes, and write it. Besides, the team-working activities, extemporization skills, and their creativity will be improved by these techniques and methods.
Then, other musical instruments have been developed for this education. Some of them:
-The rhythm bars
