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). Twelve members from GPOC attended the national conference in Cincinnati last year and they have AMAZING things to say about it! Consider joining us November 20-23 in Salt Lake City!
We have three amazing workshops coming up this year. Check out our Workshops tab for more information on dates and prices. We will be hosting Paul Cribari on September 21st at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. You won't want to miss this presenter. The last time he came to Nebraska was over a decade ago!
We will also be hosting two FREE Professional Development Socials and one FREE WORKSHOP. Check out our Facebook page 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).
