Orff Schulwerk, or simply the Orff Approach, is a developmental approach to music education for music students. Developed by German composer Carl Orff and his colleague Gunild Keetman, Orff Schulwerk combines music, movement, drama and speech to teach music in a way that the child experiences as normal play.

The Orff Approach is now used globally, with thousands of respected educational institutions applying and refining the techniques. In essence, this system makes music more approachable to children and encourages them to learn music in much the same way as they would learn a language, through listening, experimentation and having fun.

Carl Orff considered percussive rhythm as a natural form of basic human expression. The music played on Orff instruments is, therefore, very simple and can usually be learned by a child who has never played a musical instrument before. To facilitate this, the most popular Orff instruments are percussive instruments like xylophones, marimbas, glockenspiels and metallophones that have removable bars, making it easy for a teacher to present the learner only with the tones required to play a specific tune. This ensures that music is presented as a fun form of expression and not a technical challenge.
