Welcome to the Great Plains Orff Chapter
Hello GPOC Membership,
Welcome to the Great Plains Orff Chapter Website. We have tons of lesson plans, helpful hints and resources for you as you enter the "marathon" that is second semester!
For those of you who are new to Orff Schulwerk, let me shed a little light for you. Orff Schulwerk is an "approach to building musicianship in every learner through the integration of music, movement, speech, and drama." (Quotation taken from the AOSA website). To learn more about the Schulwerk, please visit the American Orff Schulwerk Association website (aosa.org). Six members from GPOC attended the national conference in Salt Lake City this past November year and they have AMAZING things to say about it! Next year will be in Kansas City and with such a wonderful opportunity happening so close to home, I hope you plan on meeting us there!
Locally, we have two more incredible workshops coming up this year. Check out our Workshops tab for more information on dates and prices. GPOC and the Plans States Kodaly Organization will be co-hosting Dr. Shelly Cooper on January 18th at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. It is a completely FREE workshop with FREE lunch included! You don't want to miss it!
Check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for more information and, as always, please feel free to contact me with any questions you have regarding GPOC or Orff Schulwerk (firstname.lastname@example.org).
