NJPAC is thrilled to offer Orff Level 1 and 2 Training, which are the first two of three-levels in the Orff Certification process through the American Orff Schulwerk Association (AOSA). The two-week intensive training will immerse visual and performing arts educators in the world of Orff Schulwerk, a multi-faceted pedagogy that focuses on essential elements of music, dance, art, and drama.

What is Orff Schulwerk? Founded by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman, the Orff Schulwerk approach uses elemental music and movement to build upon the child's world of play with the purpose of fostering creativity, conveying musical knowledge, and cultivating musicianship through speech, singing, movement, body percussion, improvisation, and the playing of pitched (Orff xylophones, metallophones, recorders) and unpitched (drums, shakers, bells) instruments. While exploring the elements of music and movement in a collaborative group setting, students and teachers experience a varied repertoire of music and dances from different cultures, styles, and time periods. Through the Orff Schulwerk approach, participants will explore, create, improvise, and compose using this vast array of media to reach learners of all ages and abilities.

Attendance

Orff Schulwerk is very hands-on and participatory, therefore attendance is paramount. Be sure to clear your calendar so that you can attend all classes. It’s also a good idea to clear your evening and weekend calendar for those two weeks, as you will have some homework and you may need to recharge after an intense day of coursework. Failure to meet the required hours will prevent you from being able to move on to the next Level or receive graduate credit should you choose to apply for it.
