One question I get asked frequently: what makes Waldorf music education unique? The short answer: a number of things! The long answer? I'll be walking you through it in a series of posts. These posts are written primarily for music educators and others with classical training, but I'm hopeful that other readers will get something out of it, too. In this post, I'll share what is the same or very similar to other music education styles, particularly the work of Zoltan Kodaly and Carl Orff as well as the key difference. In following posts, I will address various musical elements including rhythm, melody, and harmony.
What is the same/similar?
