Doherty Unit II students combine fairytales with music

Doherty Unit II students in Doherty Lower School music teacher Maria Eynon’s class began their work on their Orff Sound Stories, a method of storytelling which incorporates instruments, singing, and dialogue together to enhance students’ musical education. Each class voted, and chose to retell “Chicken Little,” “Three Billy Goats Gruff,” and “Silly Jack.” Students learned how to maintain playing a steady rhythm while singing in unison and how to switch between instruments without breaking the flow of the dialogue.
