What educators are saying

Great resource! Thank you for your time in putting this awesome resource together. The children enjoyed learning in a new and different way.
These worked very well for my students and was a great way to help them familiarize themselves with the instruments.


Use this set of 40 task cards for pitched and nonpitched instruments to make music centers, inspire creativity, and guide exploration! Students love playing the Orff instruments and nonpitched percussion and want the chance to explore the instruments to make new sounds and patterns.

For this center/activity just print off the flash cards that you want to use, laminate, and cut apart. Then use the instrument task cards to guide exploration and center activity!

This product includes:

*20 task cards for Orff instrument centers in full color or black and white

*20 task cards for nonpitched percussion in full color or black and white

*Use as individual activities, small group learning, in learning centers, or (if you're very adventurous) leave for a substitute teacher.
