What is Orff?

Sing, Say, Dance and Play: That's the motto for the Orff Process of teaching music, named after the German composer Carl Orff who along with Gunield Keetman developed this joyous way of teaching music to children.  From Kindergarten through 5th grade Sunset Ridge students experience learning music through Orff Process.
