Piano Orff December Open Class

What an abrupt end to the year! Sadly, we weren’t able to show parents some of the exciting new pieces we were working on after the sudden COVID-19 shutdown. But here’s a look back at a few pieces from our last open class in December.

Our younger Orff class (minus a few students) did a great job with “Four White Horses.” A special thanks goes to our assistant Maya!

Our two Orff classes joined together for a performance of “Leaves Are Falling Down.” Older students had the chance to add their own question/answer improvisations, while the younger class sang and performed their dance as trees.

In our second combined performance, we worked on Ghanian folk song Che Che Kule.

We also had the chance for another presentation of one of my favorites, “Bring Me Little Water, Sylvie.”

COVID-19 Update: Piano Orff classes will not resume in 2020. Piano teaching continues via Zoom and will begin in-person in September for small numbers of students. Read our full update.
