Making It Up As You GoMaking It Up As You Go

“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.”
