Instructors: Brent Holl, Rachel Aupperly and Erika Knapp Samford plans to offer two levels of Orff training this summer. Orff Schulwerk is a model for music and movement education by encouraging active and creative music making by all children, not just the musically talented. This approach to learning, developed by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman, builds musicianship through singing, playing instruments, speech, and movement. Active music making is the core of this philosophy, supporting both the conceptual and affective development of children. Active learners develop more thorough and better long-term understanding of the material and ideas involved. Children who regularly improvise and create their own dances and musical settings are uniquely prepared to solve problems in many other contexts.
From reunions, tailgates, Alumni of the Year Awards, and much more, this is a weekend that you will cherish for a life time.
