Workshop/ Meeting Calendar
When people talk about Orff Schulwerk, especially if they are not Orff teachers themselves, the description often centers around the use of the Orff Instrumentarium. However, while these instruments are delightfully enjoyed by children and adults alike, they are only a fraction of what Orff is all about. Orff teachers know that the truly magical part is really in the process, the playful exploration and discovery that is inherent within the Schulwerk. In fact, although many of the pieces found in the primary source materials of Orff and Keetman are written for the barred instruments, they are not limited to use in that media alone. This workshop will explore pieces, poetry, and activities through all four media: singing, saying, dancing, and playing, and through each of the four levels of experience: imitation, exploration, improvisation and creation.
This participatory workshop will present the principles of the Dalcroze approach, which include the study of eurhythmics (purposeful movement), solfège, and piano improvisation. This workshop will provide meaningful ways to include movement rooted in this approach to meet state standards, specifically standards 1, 5, 6, 10 as the workshop will include movement activities that involve the singing of folk songs and scale exercises, reading rhythmic notation, listening to and analyzing pieces to discover expressive qualities, and creating movement in groups.
Come experience traditional folk lessons each with a creative fun twist! Getting students engaged to build basic musical motors skills can be a challenge. Join Tim Wiegand as he shares lessons and games that will motivate students make the repetitions necessary to achieve mastery in variety of topics.

"Elemental Music: Here, There, and Everywhere” Join us as we explore elemental music and the Orff process alongside the book What Do you Do with an Idea. We’ll end with a tour of body percussion around the world ending right here in America with the historic style of movement called “Stepping”. Analysis will allow participants to dive deeper into these historical styles of rhythmic movement. Through imitation, storytelling, and composition, participants will learn rhythmic patterns and develop their own.
Join us for an afternoon of ukulele fun at Joe's Place!
