About the Event
Let’s go on an adventure! In this workshop, participants will explore the world of the Orff process and find new ways to sing, say, move, and play. By using simple speech patterns and easily created/obtainable manipulatives, teachers will learn how to process rhythms outside the world of 4/4 and how to allow their students (and themselves) to be their own composers.
Can't make the workshop? This workshop will be recorded and will be made available to all registered participants. The recording will be available until the end of the 2021-2022 school year.
