Carl Orff
b. 7-10-1895; Munich, Germany
d. 3-29-1982

Composer Carl Orff is best remembered for his 1937 cantata Carmina Burana and his contributions to music education for children. Known as Orff Schulwerk (School Work), and Musik für Kinder (Music for Children), Orff's approach combines movement, singing, playing, and improvisation and was influenced by the eurhythmics of Émile Jaques-Dalcroze.

Carl Orff quotes ~
• “Since the beginning of time, children have not liked to study. They would much rather play, and if you have their interests at heart, you will let them learn while they play; they will find that what they have mastered is child's play.”
• “Experience first, then intellectualize.”
• “Elemental music is never just music. It's bound up with movement, dance and speech, and so it is a form of music in which one must participate, in which one is involved not as a listener but as a co-performer.”
