Orff Schulwerk

Elementary music is never music alone but forms a unity with movement, dance and speech.

Carl Orff

Orff Schulwerk is a process of teaching elementary music that puts the student front and center in all things.  Through movement, singing, dancing, playing and creating, students gain ownership of their music.  Not only are students asked to play pieces of music, but they are encouraged to change and work with others to develop the music into something different and new.
