Our first workshop for the 2015-2016 school year is right around the corner and will be a great way to start the year. On Saturday, September 12th, Paul Weller is joining us and will be presenting a session titled:
Assessment, Advocacy & Accountability: creating independent musicians through elemental music
This workshop will focus on the similarities between many different methodologies and how an Orff focused classroom can achieve literacy based concepts and foster
student independence. Participants will experience strategies to create successful improvisation and composition experiences, assessment tools to help propel students quicker towards musical independence, as well as how to use less repertoire to achieve more literacy.
All Fox Valley Orff Schulwerk Chapter Workshops meet from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Prairie View Elementary School, 10N630 Nesler Road in Elgin.
Please join us for lunch after the workshop for some face to face social networking time at Al’s Cafe and Creamery!
