Well, after a fantastic first workshop and choral reading session we are incredibly excited for our second workshop on Saturday, October 5th with Laura Petersen. She will be presenting a cross-curricular session connecting movement to works of art. Our Orff Moment is “Tackling the Volumes” and we will be looking at those wonderful little books for quality music for our classrooms. Please click on the workshop tab for additional information on our session.

Fox Valley Orff-Schulwerk Chapter is a group of dedicated music specialists aimed at promoting the Orff-Schulwerk philosophy of creative, active music education through offering quality professional development workshops, networking opportunities with area music educators, and cultivating relationships with current university music education students.

What makes the Fox Valley Chapter different. Our workshops have a two hour session and then an hour Orff Moment that addresses a variety of teachers helping teachers topics. We host 4 different workshops each school year and they are currently held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Prairieview Elementary School in Elgin. Please check out our workshop information using the tabs above.
