The Effect of Orff-Based Music Instruction on Spatial-Temporal Task Performance of Young Children
Carl Orff founded his approach to music education on a pedagogical structure that stressed music, movement, and speech. In the decades following its introduction in this country in the 1960’s, music instruction for children based on the Orff approach has increased in popularity (Atterbury, 1992). Many elementary music teachers have chosen to rely exclusively on an Orff approach, whereas others use a combination of several pedagogical approaches that may include Orff-based activities (Carder, 1990).
