This week’s episode is drawn from my first two lectures this semester in Composition in Music Education. We look at some of my own Orff-style arrangements and original compositions and discuss how these can be both a pedagogical and compositional model for teaching and learning. The resources I mentioned in this episode include:
- My Train’s Off the Track arrangement (PDF)
- A printable straight train track (PDF)
- A printable curved train track (PDF)
- My original composition 6834 (PDF)
- My arrangement of a teeny bit of Daniel Rojas’ Hard Boiled Overture (PDF)
- My arrangement of the keyboard hook from Prince’s When Doves Cry (PDF)
- My arrangement of Clean Bandit’s Symphony (PDF)
