One thing that I always thought about and pined after and was sure that I would never have is instrument stands. The beauty of stands for your orff instruments is that students can stand up at the instrument. After teaching for a few years with the student sitting I can tell you that sitting can hamper posture and makes transitions long and messy and, well, it would just be easier if the student was standing.
Well, the music gods must be smiling down on me because I recently was able to inherit some old student desks that were going to be tossed out. Apparently the district had an overabundance of student desks (something about replacing old styles) and these extras were going to be tossed. I quickly snatched them up and brought them to the music room. When they're adjusted they make perfect little stands for my Orff instruments. One of the desks was even altered and adjusted and now provides a way for my student in a wheelchair to fit right in and under the instrument (more on that later).
The only alterations I made were to change the heights (easy with a phillips head screwdriver) so that all the keyboards were at the same height and then line the inside of the desks. I took felt rectangles (get them at Hobby Lobby for 25 cents a piece) and hot glued them to the inside of the desk. Now when students leave the room they can put their mallets inside the desk where they would normally put pencils. The felt also provides them a place to put the extra bars that they take off for different songs or to store their accidental bars. It's been great so far!
