INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC WITH METHODOLOGICAL GUIDELINES


“Music begins with being a human, the same is with teaching. It does not start from the instrument, with the first finger or first position, it does not start with this or that chord. To start, one needs to recognise his/her own pulse and breathing.” (C. Orff)

In music and in movement there are the same means of expression, but they manifest themselves differently – in music we will hear and in movement we will see. In primary education, means of expressing music are metre, rhythm, melody, tempo, dynamics, timbre and character. Paying attention to means of expressing music, gives movement an extra quality, it teaches to listen and understand music. In this collection of music and movement we have been directed from two important directions: Idla movement teaching and Orff pedagogy. Ernst Idla (1901-1980) – Estonian gymnastics educator. Idla’s physical education is based on the teaching and development of five physical skills and abilities: coordination (dexterity), flexibility-mobility, strength, endurance and speed. Carl Orff (1895-1982) – German composer and music teacher. Orff pedagogy is based on combining speech, movement and music into a learning process in which rhythm is a component that binds music education elements. The collection of music and movement is divided into two parts: music and movement activities for 3-7 years old (tracks 1-15) and for 7-11 years old (tracks 16-30). There are description of two uses for each piece of music: Idla’s movement and rhythmical movement. Multi-layered exercises offer ample room for manoeuver here. Movement descriptions are provided in free form. “In movement education, we can develop the interaction between music and movement to such an extent that music becomes visible through movement and movement through music is heard.” (E. Idla)
