The next Oorff workshop being held at UVM is two Saturdays from TODAY, OCT 22!
Here's the description:

When people talk about Orff Schulwerk, especially if they are not Orff
teachers themselves, the description often centers on the use of the
Orff Instrumentarium. However, as Orff practitioners, we know that
these instruments, while delightfully enjoyed by children and adults
alike, are only a fraction of what Orff is all about. We 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
I take this to mean that we'll pretty much get to act like children
and sing, say, play, and dance musical piece from 9:30-3.
Now. I really want to see more of you there... Thanks to Will C,
Lizzy, Molly and Josh who went to the latter half of the last session.
We need more participation because, in my opinion, it reflects poorly
on our NAfME chapter that we have such low attendance.
IT'S FREE. IT WON'T BE FREE WHEN YOU ARE A REAL TEACHER.
TRY IT ONCE. IT WON'T KILL YOU. Use your Saturday productively instead
of laying in bed and watching instant Netflix all day. YEAH. I SAID IT.
okay. love you all, enjoy this weather, because pretty soon we're
going to get snow and freezing temperatures slapping us in the face. : )
