Orff is currently diving into project based learning by creating student written compositions through improvisation on the Orff Xylophones. We will continue to develop melodic and rhythmic phrases, and orchestrate a final arrangement that will include a variety of other instruments. Students will present their original composition at upcoming performances, including Bray's Extravaganza and Fine Arts Finale.
BRAY ORFF ENSEMBLE
What We Do: This is a high quality instrumental percussion ensemble.
Students will learn to play and create with Orff xylophones, drums,
percussion, hand bells and the recorder. Performances will occur
throughout the year and in major
district events in the spring. Students must have superior citizenship.
Age group: 3rd–5th grade INVITATION ONLY (except returning members) MAXIMUM 25
Who can join: Due to limited instrumentation, this group is by invitation only. The music teacher evaluates all students during music class, and sends home a letter inviting students who display an aptitude for percussion and have superior citizenship in all classes. Rehearsal Days
Tuesday and Thursday @ 2:15-2:55pm
