Children learn in the Orff Schulwerk classroom by doing what comes naturally to them…playing. In this active workshop, participants will explore the art of playing through imitation, exploration, and creation. Participants will experience the joy of active music making through the media of Orff Schulwerk: singing, saying, dancing, and playing. Participants should be prepared to move and dress comfortably.
