A SNAPSHOT OF ORFF-SCHULWERK

A SNAPSHOT OF ORFF-SCHULWERK
This term, we are throwing back to our 2023 ASME Summer School Sessions run by Orff Masters, Eboney Yapp and Andy Stewart. Eboney and Andy have been heavily involved in the State and National levels of Orff-Schulwerk for many years and have a very passionate understanding of the value and growth that Orff can provide for both students and music educators.
This past summer, Eboney and Andy ran a session each at the annual ASME Summer School to give participants a thorough understanding of the joy, creativity and hands-on interaction that Orff brings to every classroom. 
The notes to Eboney’s session titled “Guided Listening – An Orff Approach” can be found at this link below.
