Now that we know the building blocks of the Orff Approach, we have the opportunity to see it in action. Students will be joining us for this workshop as we witness a musical journey through their own choices. We will focus on both musical and movement composition as we observe and encourage students to be the creators themselves! Students will use pitched and non-pitched instruments such as xylophones, guiros, rainsticks, and triangles. Come prepared to be inspired!
