Before I ventured into art, I taught elementary music. I am a proponent of the “Orff” method of music education which combines movement, percussion instruments, speech and song. I completed my 3rd level of Orff training (named for Carl Orff, a German composer) last summer and now I am Orff certified! Making music with kids is quite fun.
I made this little poster for music teachers who are also into “Orff”. You can find it in my Teachers Pay Teachers store, “Classroom Doodles”, here.
Don’t know what a guiro is? This is what Wikipedia says: The güiro (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈɡwiɾo]) is a Latin-Americanpercussion instrument consisting of an open-ended, hollow gourd with parallel notches cut in one side. It is played by rubbing a stick or tines along the notches to produce a ratchet-like sound.
Guiros made for children are usually made of wood and are painted with red and green. Kids sometimes refer to it as the “fish”.
I couldn’t resist making a small collage of my Making Music series. I will make one at the end of this challenge with all 30 paintings, but here is a sneak peak. I made this collage in Ipiccy.
