This week, I've been (re)introducing all the LS classes to the Orff instruments. We start with just a few bars on the instruments, and gradually add more notes as the year goes on. Today, my Forest 1 group had four different instrument parts going while singing a three-part round! It was so exciting that I pulled out my laptop and made a Garageband recording, which you can listen to here.
The song is "Canoe Song," sometimes called "Land of the Silver Birch." Here are the words:
My paddle's keen and bright
Flashing with silver.
Follow the wild goose flight
Dip, dip, and swing.
