Music enhances a person’s mood, creates relaxation and can overall be fun. After researching on Carl Orff’s pedagogy, it is noticeable that there were easy ways to implement music in the classroom without having to have an actual music class. The purpose of my project is to determine ways that teachers can implement Orff’s pedagogy in everyday curriculum. I was determined to present a lesson plan to two different third grade classrooms and be able to receive feedback from both the students and the teacher. Given that the corona virus took place mid semester, I was not able to include my own personal results or feedback. Although I wasn’t able to include my own results, I was able to use the results from a study already done. My findings showed that teachers were able to implement Orff’s pedagogy in everyday classroom activities.
