00-44551     Rockin’ the Radio, by Mari Schay, book

Pop Arrangements and Teaching Strategies for Orff Instruments

Rock out to songs like Katy Perry’s “Roar,” The Beatles’ “She Loves You,” and Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” with Mari Schay’s age-appropriate, skill-building arrangements for Orff and classroom percussion. Along the way, you’ll reinforce rhythmic concepts, note reading, playing techniques, and so much more, as the author includes several pages of teaching strategies to guide the process (even addressing the national standards). A handful of traditional favorites rounds out the balanced song list, equally appropriate for existing Orff ensembles or general music class. The enhanced CD includes full performance demonstrations of all ten songs, as well as printable/reproducible/projectable instrument parts. Recommended for grades 4–9.
