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 and they have AMAZING things to say about it! Consider joining us next year in Salt Lake City!
If you weren't able to travel to the National Conference this year, DON'T WORRY. We have one more great workshop coming up that will bring professional development to YOU! Please join us on March 30th for Matthew Stensrud's Infusion of Responsive Classroom within Orff Schulwerk. See the workshop tab for more information and pricing!
We will also be hosting two FREE Professional Development Socials. 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. (email@example.com).
