Named after German composer Carl Orff, Orff music is an innovative way for children to explore and create music. Children move and dance to rhythms, sing and accompany their songs, and improvise, using both pitched and unpitched instruments and child-size mallet instruments—xylophones, metallophones, and glockenspiels. The emphasis is on experiencing music in ways that are fun and exciting.
The children develop musical and listening skills, enhance coordination, build self-confidence, expand Creativity, and learn to work cooperatively in groups. Through this natural healing process, the children become aware of their own character traits, such as Honesty, Joy, Creativity, Honor, through rhymes, songs, and stories.
