Diatonic Stand with wheels
Height Adjustable using hole and peg system
Orff Keyboard stands are designed to lift the keyboards to the correct playing height. Those with wheels allow the instruments to be moved around the classroom and into position for ensemble playing. However we do not recommend that these stands are used to transport instruments across a school - the wheels are only small and the frames are not designed to cope with uneven / rough terrain.

Chimes and Resonator Bars There are a whole host of See Page 11 for benefits for using chime bars more Chime Bars when teaching in schools; from developing motor skills, hand eye co-ordination, listening skills, colour and number practice to learning to sing in tune, and teaching simple intervals. Chime bars are also very good for teaching solfege which builds a firm foundation for learning to read, hear and play all music. Chime bars assist in the understanding of how notes sound as they move up and down, giving spacial awareness of intervals and this leads to a good grounding for reading music later on. Chime bars are very adaptable instruments and can be used to encourage creativity with composing and improvisation. They build memory skills with patterns and sequences which is also so good for maths development.

Designed by Rick Kramer the Joia Tubes were developed to be a more orchestral sounding instrument. Sealing the bottom of the tube and resonating the sound back out through the top of the instrument doubles the resonating effect, allowing for a more sustained note. The stand allows for tremendous flexibility and lets the tubes resonate to their full effect. The Joia Tubes, whether used professionally, educationally or therapeutically, offer rich, melodic and specific pitches that resonate as a beautiful musical instrument . SEE THEM IN ACTION HERE

Musica Viva Lesson Plan WIM-O-WEH (THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT) This still popular song was originally written and recorded by Solomon Linda in 1939, under the title Mbube. Composed in Zulu, it was adapted and covered internationally by many 1950s and '60s pop and folk artists. However, the version it is best-known for with its English lyrics ‘In the jungle, the mighty jungle…’ was written by George Weiss and produced by Hugo Peretti and Luigi Creatore in 1961. Frequently known as The Lion Sleeps Tonight, the subtitle Wimoweh, taken from the text of the chorus, is often used to refer to the song. Each verse contains text which is structured in a similar way, making it an easy song to learn. The chord structure used as the accompaniment for both the verse and the chorus sections is identical (I-IV-I-V). It is possible therefore to combine the melodic material of both the verse and the chorus sections harmoniously, like a partner song. It is also easy to devise melodic ostinato patterns which can be used to accompany both sections of the song. METHOD What would you hear in the jungle? Discuss with your students: What is a jungle? What might you see and hear in a jungle? What kind of movement would there be? Discuss the sounds associated with the things the students have suggested. Ask students to explore and experiment with creating jungle sounds using: Just their voice, Body percussion (using hands in various ways and on different surfaces), Found sounds (using things in the classroom e.g. pencils being shaken in a tin or tapped on a table), Extended (unconventional) playing techniques on classroom percussion instruments, On a chart, record the sounds that are most successful.
Learn to sing the song 1. Find a video clip on YouTube of the song The Lion Sleeps Tonight. The Hippo Pat & Dog Stanley version is good fun and very clear. 2. While viewing, have the students keep the beat of the song by: - patting their knees - marching on the spot - walking, following a leader - devising their own simple body percussion pattern to beat-keep 3. Sing the song with the video clip several times so they are familiar with it and can sing on their own. 4. Have students experiment and suggest different ostinati that could be played or sung with the song. This could take the form of a rhythmic ostinato - played as a body percussion pattern or on an untuned percussion instrument, or a melodic ostinato to be sung or played on a tuned instrument. Encourage students to use words as the basis for their repeated pattern (ostinato). For example: The lion sleeeeeeps, the lion sleeeeeeps Steamy jungle hot and still, steamy jungle hot and still Screeching monkeys, lions and birds 5. Transfer the words to body percussion or instruments. 6. Ask students to think about which instruments might best represent the sounds of the jungle they are trying to convey.
Create a jungle-themed piece Create or improvise a short jungle-soundscape introduction and coda for Wimoweh. Use jungle sounds brainstormed at the beginning of the lesson – utilising body percussion, found sound sources, voice and classroom percussion. See below for a suggested structure to a class composition of Wimoweh: Whole class play jungle soundscape introduction Layer in a small group playing Ostinato 1 Layer in a small group playing Ostinato 2 Class sings Wimoweh while Ostinato 1 and 2 continue After the final chorus, layer out Ostinato 1 and 2 in the same way they came in Conclude with whole-class jungle soundscape as a coda

We think that these books are terrific. The CD contains well recorded orchestral music. The score and the Boomwhacker parts are all provided. There is even an excellent piano arrangement of each piece (to use as an alternative when rehearsing or even when performing). You can teach the parts by rote or the students can colour in their notes to match their boomwhackers. All of this music is instantly transferable for use with chime bars and Orff keyboards making it a fantastic resource. Highly recommended by the staff at Optimum!!!.

Ocarinas English Ocarina and its unique fingering system as developed and manufactured by Ocarina Workshop® .
Ocarinas in Schools
Why is the Ocarina special? Non specialist music teachers and their students will be reading music in an instant Note-by-note music learning is supported by pictorial notation, which is attached to the musical stave and shows which combination of holes to cover. This is highly successful and rewarding. The key to successful music-making is learning to play hundreds of tunes Everyone can read the tablature and there are many tunes to play Everyone stays motivated as progression is rapid When a tune is new or unfamiliar, just put on the CD, sing and start to play No squeaks The sound of a class of youngsters playing ocarinas blends well and, in time, everyone will make a good sound whether playing solo or in a group. Skills learned are transferable skills Ocarina playing leads on equally well to playing other wind and string instruments: skills include familiarity with musical notation, playing melodies and harmonies and learning a simple fingering.
WHERE TO START Infant and Primary aged classes: We suggest you start with the 4-hole Ocarina using either Book 1 of “Play your Ocarina” series or with ‘12-3 Ocarina’ as tunes are immediately playable from both books. Play your Ocarina has the fingering under each note as tablature and 123 Ocarina teaches the notes one at a time for each piece. Books come with or without CD.
Play Your Ocarina Books 1 - 7 with CD by David & Christa Liggin All 11 notes are equally easy to play and clearly shown in Book 1. Play tunes confidently from day one by following the ocarina-shaped finger-charts and music in Book 1. The audio CD includes all 22 tunes from Book 1 played on ocarina, with outstanding accompaniments. Play along with the additional 22 backing-tracks for your own ocarinakaraoke and performances. Each book increases in difficulty

Xyloba Xyloba is a creative marble run for building and composing at the same time. Xyloba develops motor function and spatial imagination and also facilitates a creative approach to music. It is available in sets the produce specific tunes, in small and large general packages and as separate parts.
Frere Jacque ERX/XYL-22601 $369.00
The simple interlocking Xyloba system allows an almost unlimited number of variations. The fun really begins when, in addition to building, one starts composing. Xyloba provides students with access to the world of melodies and rhythms, an almost unlimited number of different setup variations, the opportunity to enhance their spatial imagination and a creative approach to music. The chimes can also be randomly mounted and interchanged just for fun. Coincidences often result in enchanting melodies. Xyloba allows the discovery and recognition of different note values, for instance ½ notes, ¼ notes, ⅛ notes as well as their dotted forms. The 20 different chimes, which range chromatically from G2 to D4, help distinguish between pitches and intervals. (All tunes sound two octaves higher than written.) As the marble rolls down the track, it strikes the individually mounted chimes. Ramps of different lengths produce the rhythm.

“Puppets change the entire classroom by creating more possibilities for creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and curiosity. They give students a (sometimes silly) voice and put them in the role of creator. They can also be a co-teacher, a physical avatar, a learning partner, and even facilitate learning by subverting the ego. “ 2.

Puppet Lesson Ideas PUPPETS LESSON IDEAS
“Puppets can sing, talk, whisper, shout, dance, cry, laugh, talk like an animal or imaginary character.” 1.
Pitch Matching 1. Hold a puppet and sing hello to it and ask it to echo sing back to you. Ask the students to tell you if it is the same or different. The same pitch
If it was different, ask who would like to help the puppet to sing back ‘the same’. Hand them a/the puppet and sing again. The student sings for the puppet. The puppet helps children who have less confidence. If the student pitch matches differently, sing as if from the puppet at the new different pitch and see if they can hear that it is now the same. Ask them to sing again and hear that it is the same pitch. You can also choose whether to sing back at the same or different pitch to change it up as the students get more confident. The learning objective is all about listening closely and recognising whether sounds match or not.

Lesson Plan COMPOSING A ROUND USING NOTE KNACKS This lesson is about having fun with rounds. After you have sung some rounds in class, this is an opportunity for children to create their own. OBJECTIVE
Students will create a rhythm in a time signature Students will add pitch to that rhythm using notes from a pentatonic scale Students will play the created composition in a round
5 Sets of Note Knacks and Sets of Time Signature Frames Pitched instruments
METHOD Choose a Time Signature to work in as a class eg 4/4 Have students create a rhythm using a set of note knacks in that chosen Time Signature Frame. Here is an example. Choose a pentatonic scale eg - CDE GA
As an example, take a sample rhythm and choose pitches from the chosen pentatonic scale. Assign a pitch to every color (this is so that eighths and sixteenths are all on the same pitch). Here is an example using Boomwhackers but you could use any pitched instruments
Have students play the bar Add 3 more bars and do the same (So there are 4 bars total) Play composition several times until they know it Explain the definition of a round Split class into 2 groups Have first group start and then the second group starts when the first group has finished the second bar Repeat several times Split your students into 5 small groups Give each group a set of Note Knacks and the chosen Frame Allow each group to compose 2 bars Put their bars together and create a composition that will be played in a round. Notate on the board. As a group, decide where that second group should come in and if any notes should be changed.
To make it easier, students can choose pitches from a chord instead of a pentatonic scale Add accompaniment with a pitched drone Use as an A section and compose a B section the same way, but using a different Time Signature Frame Perform for another class or at assembly !

The three volumes of the American Edition contain a wide range of both traditional and new material (speech exercises, games, dances, texts, songs with instrumental pieces, information on how to use the material). Orff-Schulwerk is not a method that should be followed page by page; it is a collection of material that invites original arrangements or variations and the composition of complementary and contrasting material. This edition follows the tradition of Schulwerk editions from other countries and contains some vocal and instrumental material from the original Schulwerk. However, most of the material has been contributed by leading educators that reflects the vast panorama of the cultural heritage of the United States. In all volumes there are several articles, each dealing with a specific topic within the field of Music and Dance Education. These unique volumes provide a rich and varied source of material which will stimulate the imagination of Orff-Schulwerk teachers everywhere. MP100.1ORF-MU1 MP100.1ORF-MU2 MP100.1ORF-MU3

Make a Joyful Sound! Don Dupont & Brian Hiller Gunild Keetman (1904-1990) was a composer, performer and teacher who played a critical role in the development and spread of Orff Schulwerk (Orff Schoolwork).

About Honduras Rosewood According to one of the worlds leading manufacturers of Marimbas, Ron Samuels from Marimba One rosewoods from Africa, Asia, Central America, and South America are under threat and the kind specifically used for concert-level marimbas which is called Honduras Rosewood (Dalbergia Stevensonii) is grown only in Guatemala, Belize and Southern Mexico. This Honduras Rosewood is highly in demand by concert percussion manufacturers and the exporting and logging is strictly regulated as the supply becomes more limited and expensive. . In light of this pressure on Honduras Rosewood selecting a marimba that is suitable for your school or for personal use is an important decision. These instruments need to offer excellence in sound and functionality as well as good long term service. Please call 02 9744 1829 to discuss your needs. Bar Tuning All marimbas and xylophones need tuning occasionally. Wood is a natural product and will be affected by weather conditions and playing. If your school has a marimba (or xylophone) that needs tuning please call us and we will help you get it playing in top condition. Spare parts also available for all brands.

If well maintained, they can last for many decades. Call us for expert advice in purchasing the right model for your needs and budget. We know all the sounds, the frames, dimensions and weights, pedal actions, bowl types and shapes. We know which ones are height adjustable, which ones have fine tuners, which ones fit in to small store rooms & which ones wheel the best.

Slipping pedals, missing gauge indices and dodgy wheels can cause major headaches. We know all the brands very well and can provide you with the right heads, correct spare parts and advice to keep your drums working. If needed, we can organise a service person to come to your school or even organise to have the drums shipped to us for servicing. We service every timpani we sell prior to delivery to ensure they arrive to you perfectly adjusted with the pedals balanced, heads clear in pitch and gauges set ready to play. New high quality Pedal Timpani start from less than $3000 per drum.
