  3. I started performing in the area of Multicultural music and

    dance in 1980, while still training to be a classroom and instrumental music teacher at Melbourne State College. Together with two other friends – Gary King and Christoph Maubach – the band Shenanigans was formed, drawing on our various ethnic backgrounds and musical experiences. We toured extensively around Australia for a number of years, also playing at folk festivals, community events and presenting at National and International Music Education Conferences. I have taught in a variety of settings over many years. These include in Primary Schools, Pre-schools, Dance and Music departments of tertiary institutions in Melbourne, private instrumental tuition, as well as teaching in in-service training courses for Music and Movement educators, using the Orff approach. I have also been proud to serve as Treasurer and President of the Victorian Orff Schulwerk Association as well as serving as a general committee member for a number of years. At this point in my life, I want to spend my energy supporting teachers, which is why I have produced this resource. Japan - Unlock a Whole World of Music and Fun pg. 3
  4. A flag and a map, showing the country presented, in

    relation to Australia A piece of traditional folk music, arranged using typical classroom instruments, in the Orff style, making it suitable for anyone to play A colouring page showing a male and female in traditional clothing Then, each chapter has an assortment of activities, ideas, arts and crafts relating to the country, covering a range of curriculum areas, such as sport, art, craft, drama, creative writing and more. The accompanying recorded music gives an example of each written part, so that it is easy to understand, even for those teachers who are not musically trained. There is also an example of a full arrangement, to performance ideas to the teacher, or for the students to play along with. I have also included visual recordings of each musical part, as well as offering a bit extra that is not notated in the chapter you have chosen. This resource has come about for 2 main reasons: 1 - My passionate wish to broaden children’s minds by giving them the opportunity to explore different cultures in our ever-shrinking world. My aim is to present music as just one facet of cultural life by offering it in conjunction with typical games, arts and crafts of a given culture, as well as offering a range of other related creative activities. 2 – In recognition of the requirement of 1 teacher in school to be able to teach across a number of Arts areas that seems to be more and more prevalent in education currently. My hope is, also, that many teachers within the school can find useful ideas and activities in this resource, to enable the Arts to be more fully integrated into school life. How to use this resource: Each “chapter” of this resource focuses on one country. There are certain aspects present in every chapter and other activities that are unique to the culture. The aspects in common: Finally… I hope you gain as much pleasure and satisfaction from using this resource as I have gained in producing it.

  9. Japanese Vendor's Song This round is about a market place,

    so why not create a market in the playground at school? Your class could sell home-made lemonade and the money raised in this way can be given to your favourite charity. Make the song a feature of your "marketplace". You might make up a short play about being poor and rying to sell food on the street. Students can either work on the story as a group or have several small groups write their stories Drama Activity Making Lemonade You will need 2 lemons, 600ml boiling water, 125g sugar, a large jug, a mixing spoon and a grater. Grate the lemon peel into the jug. Poir over boiling water. Add sugar and allow to stand until cool. When cool, add the juice of the 2 lemons and serve. (For an interesting extra flavour, you may like to add a few mint leaves to the cooling mixture , if available You may include (flavoured) milk and sandwiches at your market stall, as these are also mentioned in the song Japan - Unlock a Whole World of Music and Fun pg. 9
