James River Virginia Chapter AOSA
Fall Workshop, Presenter: Dr. Maribeth Yoder-White
From Point A to B: It's All About Process
While we may share common goals, one of the defining features of the Orff Schulwerk approach separating us from “traditional” music instruction is process, the steps by which we lead children to experience and understand music. Through active learning, children imitate, explore, and create music, thereby developing music literacy and skills. This workshop is designed to allow participants to experience and reflect on varied approaches to process and to consider the application of various strategies in their respective classrooms. Come prepared to sing, dance, play, and create in community as together we experiment with ideas and learn with playfulness, freedom, and joy!
