Hello Everyone! I would like to share that I have immensely enjoyed two Saturday workshops hosted by the Detroit Orff Schulwerk Association, one on Sept. 19th and one on Oct. 10th. These workshops are professional development opportunities for music teachers in the Detroit and surrounding areas that promote the Orff-Schulwerk philosophy of music education - a combination of music, movement, speech, and drama. From these workshops, I have discovered new ways to include children's books, American history, and musical improvisation in the music classroom. I am excited to try these new ideas with students at Loon Lake!
