Here is my arrangement of the song “Sun Don’t Set in the Mornin'” for Orff instruments, to be played by students in a classroom. For the accompanying lesson plan, click here.

This is an arrangement of a Hebrew folk melody as a duet for two recorders, to add an aspect of teamwork and cultural knowledge to learning recorder:

This is a percussion part I added to the song “Hurry, Little Pony,” for my student teaching placement with a seventh grade recorder class. In addition to the added percussion, I inserted improvisational question-and-answer sections, performed by chosen students, in between repetitions of the main 8-bar song, making it into a rondo. The class performed the arrangement at their concert.
