Orff and aural learning-inspired arrangements by Sydney Conservatorium students

Every year at the Sydney Conservatorium I get to take one of my favourite courses, Composition in Music Education.

The first task, after reviewing a number of creative music pedagogies, is to create a “mixed-bag” arrangement (one that will work for any combination of instruments at all) with aural learning elements. Actually, I talk about the process in this video from my MOOC:

This year there have been some great submissions, and some of the students have been generous enough to share theirs on their public blogs. Here are those:

  • Su Cho – Somebody that I used to know by Gotye. Click here.
  • Caitlin Sandiford – Façades by Philip Glass. Click here.
  • Sam Xu – Time by Hans Zimmer. Click here.
  • Dorothy Ji – Divenire by Ludovico Einaudi. Click here.
  • Gillian Platt – Come on Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners. Click here.
  • Fynn McMullen – Redbone by Childish Gambino. Click here.
  • Mr Remington – Maneuver, original composition. Click here.

Hopefully I haven’t missed any of the students who shared – but I’m sure they’ll remind me if I have, and I can update this!

Please, have your say.
