This book is the sequel to Alice Brass's popular Orff Day by Day. It follows the same practical and detailed approach, and answers such questions as: How can I work with word rhythms? How could I ever teach a dance? How do I put together a piece with many parts? How can I use poetry with Orff music? How can I turn classroom work into a performance? How can I combine visual arts with Orff music? The book outlines ten projects that take the teacher class by class through a process that will teach the basic skills and combine them with the children's creativity. It will be valuable to teachers interested in integrating the arts and literacy with music.
