Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School music teacher Craig Knapp is sharing his educational practices and talents as part of a new book he co-authored with four other national educators. 

The book, “First Steps in Music with Orff Schulwerk – Sing, Say, Dance, Play,” is full of strategies and activities that link the Orff Schulwerk approach to John M. Feierabend’s “First Steps in Music” methodology.  The book includes activities pertaining to the eight parts of the approach as well as 12 complete lesson plans, supplemental repertoire and a dedication section on Arioso. 

Mr. Knapp has been teaching general music and chorus at JAE since 1998.
