1. Orff Schulwerk Approach

Orff Schulwerk Approach

Published on 20 Apr 2021


Starting from Term 2, April 2021, Cherie Hearts will be incorporating the Orff Schulwerk, or simply the Orff Approach into our teaching. Orff Schulwerk is a German music approach for Malaysia's children. Classes will be conducted by trained and qualified music teachers.  

What is the Orff Approach to music? 

The Orff approach involves singing, body percussion, playing on a variety of both tuned and untuned instruments, movement and dancing, and speech activities to encourage active music making. It was conceived by German composer, Carl Orff and his colleague Gunild Keetman. Its foundation was concerned with the child: the needs of the child and the emphasis on nourishing the musicality of each child through elemental activities in music and movement. The Orff approach to music engages the child’s mind and body through lessons that are presented with an element of “play” which is similar to a child’s world of thought and fantasy. It also increases motor skills, improves social skills, group coordination, promotes creative thinking and problem-solving.
