Participatory music—music made with others rather than presentational concerts given for others—is illuminated through a series of events in Japan, throughout which simple musical structures invite all to take part, exemplifying the values of group cohesion and social bonding. In this article, the author discusses participatory music relative to Orff Schulwerk and describes opportunities that help teachers implement a participatory framework to emphasize values helpful in today’s schools.
