You Can Walk...You Can Talk...You Can Orff! by Joy Reeve - A Classroom Music Resource for Grades 1-6
Offers clear explanations and examples of Orff pedagogy for teaching elementary music in the classroom. The elements of beat, rhythm, and form are defined and paired with ostinato, word substitution, improvisation, movement and dance, in practical, successful and accessible lessons. With the Orff approach, music education begins from the body: You Can Walk; stems through and from language: You Can Talk; and puts them together harmoniously: You Can Orff! Comes with CD.

"The message of this book is you can do it! Joy Reeve's extensive experience working with classroom teachers was the impetus behind this book, and she has put in place everything a generalist needs to make friends with the elementary music curriculum: delightful repertoire, an audio CD, carefully sequenced teaching steps, generic activities that can be adapted to a wide variety of materials, student sheets and a useful reference section.
You Can Walk... You Can Talk... You Can Orff! is essential for the novice and a musical treat for the experienced music teacher!" - Catherine West, Pedagogy Leader, Royal Conservatory of Music.
Joy Reeve is an Orff Levels Instructor for the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and has been teaching for over two decades. She has a Post Level 3 Masters in Orff Pedagogy.
