The Orff Source Volume 3

Themes & Variations

SKU: 750

This resource has 38 Orff arrangements of traditional and composed folk songs and singing games, using I, I-V or I-IV-V chords. Teachers looking for interesting arrangements for upper elementary students will find many choices. Game directions are included for the singing games. 

Many of the songs included in this collection come from Musicplay Grade 5 and Middle School, but teachers do not need to use the Musicplay curriculum to make excellent use of the arrangements and games in this collection. Arrangements by Robert A. Amchin, Daphne Price, Lorie Price-Wagner and Judy Sills are included.
