The Orff Source

Themes & Variations

SKU: 730

The Orff Source includes 89 arrangements of traditional and familiar game songs and folk songs sequenced according to tone set. (sm, lsm, smd ...) The sequencing will help the classroom music teacher find repertoire to fit their curriculum scope and sequence. Having the complete set of arrangements will save the teacher a great deal of planning and preparation time.

The 89 arrangements are co-related to the Musicplay program. If you are using Musicplay, this will provide you with arrangements of many of the songs in Musicplay Grade 1-5. However, the book will be a valuable resource with or without any music textbook. The arrangements are by Judy Sills and Denise Gagne, and edited by Judy Sills (84 pages).
