Community Music

Caroline and Clare are experienced musicians and music educators.

They have been trained in the Orff Schulwerk approach to music education. This music and movement approach has been developed by Carl Orff (composer of Carmina Burana).

We use body percussion, non-melodic instruments eg: shakers, drums, claves, woodblocks and melodic instruments eg: xylophones, glockenspiels, marimbas.
