CHANGE TO OUR WORKSHOP SERIES: The Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation was unable to host this upcoming workshop. We are excited to announce in their place the workshop "Decisions, Decisions!" hosted by Becky Burdett! The Orff Schulwerk teacher functions as a facilitator in the classroom setting. However, letting the creative process unfold meaningfully takes careful planning and preparation. This session will balance deliberate instruction and discovery education through student choice. Strategies for developing playing skills and management in the Orff Schulwerk classroom will be integrated throughout the morning.
WHEN? Saturday, March 12th from 9:00am-11:00am
WHERE? Hunziker Hall, Virtually! (If attending virtually, a Zoom link will be emailed to registrants prior to the workshop start time)
