(Schott). Organized in two sections: Section One provides a series of rhythmic and musical preparations in mixed and irregular meters (with emphasis on 7/8, based on excerpts from The Raccoon Philosopher. Ideas are explored for studying specific meters to be moved, played and sung within the mini-musical. Extensions are suggested for other curricular uses under 'interdisciplinary connection.' Section Two is the complete mini-musical, The Raccoon Philosopher, which embraces mixed and irregular meter concepts, along with playing, singing, moving and creating. This section also includes staging and costuming suggestions, speech play, songs, movement/choreography ideas and Orff orchestrations. In both sections, true to the Orff-Schulwerk philosophy, it is the authors' intent that the process be engaging and open-ended, and that it be treated as importantly as the materials that are provided. Students and teachers are invited not only to enjoy the mini-musical suggestions, but also to revel in the preparatory work where their ideas may ultimately enhance and enliven the final performance. - Develop musical skills using recorders and tuned and untuned percussion instruments - Develop children's voices - Lively, fun material suitable for performance - To offer students opportunities to read, explore, move and have experiences with mixed and irregular metres in a playful and engaging way - To familiarize students with stage terms and vocabulary
