Taking the Orff Approach to Heart: Essays & Articles from a Pioneer of Orff in America
Brasstown Press is excited to announce the forthcoming new book, launching in late 2014. A collection of essays and other written materials from Isabel McNeill Carley, it will be available in EPUB (Nook, iBooks, most other readers), MOBI (Kindle) and PDF formats.
“This collection of twenty-one essays from the pen of one of our most thoughtful pioneers is a landmark publication. … a collection to savour, to dip into and read in bits and pieces, or from cover to cover. It clarifies important, perhaps sometimes overlooked, understandings from the dawn of the development of Orff pedagogy and inspires belief in the model, and its ongoing relevance.”

Anne Carley wrote an article for West Music about the four books in the Orff Essentials Collection. She discusses how to teach from the RIT books, and answers a lot of questions about what the books cover and how they fit in the curriculum. She also provides background about Isabel Carley, and tells the story of how the books came to be. Read more here. Enjoy!
Recorder Improvisation And Technique books two and three will be published this month, joining Book One, which appeared in June. These fresh new uniform editions of the classic three-book series are completely redesigned, with added reference materials, while retaining the content that has kept them in such high regard.
