Presented by COLLEEN VERNON, Baltimore Maryland

Registration and Check-in 8:45. Workshop 9:00am-1:00pm.

Orff Schulwerk gives teachers the power to design music classes that give students a creative voice. This workshop will give ideas for supporting students through the creative process, taking baby steps towards improvisation and composition with movement, rhythm, and recorder. Unlock your own creativity as a teacher to design well-rounded lessons that you love to teach! Use swing music to inspire a Savoy-Style jam circle in your classroom! Get ideas for building a DIY musical production at any scale, for any group of students. Get some wonderful take-home lesson ideas and the tools to create your own!
