The Orff Schulwerk approach to music education will form the basis of the music program for the children at St Thomas More. This approach aims to immerse the children in a variety of enjoyable, satisfying and exciting experiences that will help to enhance the development of music concepts. These concepts include pitch, dynamics, duration, tone colour and structure.
The children will be actively involved in listening, vocal (speech and singing), movement, dance and instrument (percussion) activities. They will be encouraged to participate with confidence, create their own musical patterns, appreciate various styles of music and share their learning with others.
