The Orff approach to singing, dancing and playing is multi-sensory, active and creative, and includes all players with their different abilities. In this workshop we focus on play songs and games with music and movement. By extending these, we widen experience in sensory awareness, language, listening, visualisation and communication. This workshop will present a number of play songs and their extensions suitable for children 4-11 years, with and without disabilities.
