Hey there Orff Ensemble -- here's audio of new piece we're learning -- "Tumbling Down" -- along with some unconventional notation. Take a few minutes to listen and look. Notice how this type of notation emphasizes contour (up and down) in the melody and length of phrases. In some ways I think it is easier to read.
Between now and next week I hope you'll spend a little time with this piece. If you have a piano see if you can figure it out. If you don't own a piano you can use the online piano posted under "my links." Remember to use good crossover technique. ;)
