This course covers the philosophical and pedagogical principles of Orff-Schulwerk, and approach to music education developed by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman. The approach is based on the central idea that music, movement and speech are inseparable and creativity is at the core of music learning. Skills are developed through studies of basic pedagogy, movement and recorder with a hands-on approach to active music making. Course content will include a variety of daily classes, including basic pedagogy, movement, recorder and special topics. Level I training is a prerequisite to Level II. This course is approved by the American Orff-Schulwerk Association.
