Orff Schulwerk is a music education method I first learned about in 1993, as a music education major enrolled in a class called Elementary Methods. In this class, we dove into the teaching techniques and music education methods of Kodaly, Dalcroze and Orff.
Music Monkey Jungle is a an art community where primates of all ages come together to sing, dance, play and learn through songs, dances and games that teach a myriad of lessons from multiple subjects. It’s been ingrained in my learning that in order for music to learned correctly, it should never ever EVER be taught by itself.
Studies have shown that music stimulates positive effects on physical and mental health, spatial reasoning, memory, academics, self-esteem, attitude and mood. We have the expertise to help you make a difference in your classroom.
From sing-a-longs to drumming to dance, see a full list of our programs.
