March is - Music in Our Schools Month Maine Orff Festival 2017

This March marks the 24th year for the annual Maine Orff Festival of Music.  Third and fourth grade students from Raymond and Windham met at the Windham Primary School.  Music students spent the day singing, dancing and playing instruments; culminating with a 2 p.m. concert showing what they had learned.  Nancy Cash-Cobb, Patricia Gordan and Charles Oehrtmann, (Windham/Raymond Schools’ music teachers) hosted the festival.  The Orff approach to music education stresses the development of each individual student’s musicality through active learning.
