Music Philosophy

Arts Integration at Lewis and Clark

Arts Integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both.

At Lewis and Clark, we strive to prepare students for endless opportunities. We equip students with opportunities to collaborate, critically think, communicate, and create. During music class, I will be teaching students skills through Arts Integration and we will be creating, performing, and responding to music according to the National Core Arts Standards.

Orff Schulwerk at Lewis and Clark

"Tell me, I forget; Show me, I remember; Involve me, I understand." - Carl Orff

Orff Schulwerk is an open-ended approach to music-making. It joins together speech, song, and movement to allow for the fullest individual expression. Through this unity, all musical elements are explored, imitate, and improvised, culminating in music literacy.
