Course Description:

The Orff Schulwerk Teacher Certification courses immerse participants in the Orff approach to teaching music. Carl Orff devised this approach to develop musical qualities inherent in all people through an active and creative learning process. It applies to all areas of music education, including early childhood, primary, secondary, tertiary, studio, therapy or special education. Participants in the certification courses experience first-hand this way of learning and teaching, using the skills and techniques specific to the Orff approach.

Levels 1, 2 and 3 will include studies in Movement and Dance, Orchestration and Analysis, Technique and Improvisation, Recorder, Vocal Studies and Pedagogy. Level 1 participants require a descant recorder, Level 2 participants require a treble recorder, Level 3 participants require any melodic instrument that they can play PLUS any or all of the recorder family (descant, treble, tenor and bass). A basic knowledge of music notation is required for this course.

Certification is attained through successfully completing all assessment tasks during the course and attending the required 36 face-to-face hours. It is a requirement that each Level is successfully completed before moving to the next Level.
