Round the Corner and Away we go
This folksong collection provides models of arrangements to be taught using the Orff Schulwerk approach. The arrangements may be taught as printed or used as the basis for creative extensions – or both – and the accompanying teaching suggestions give examples of how to break down instrumental parts and sequence their presentation developmentally. Dance or play-party instructions are also given for some songs.
