TASTE OF ORFF: Seeds of Inspiration
Tuesday, September 18, 2018
4:30-7:00, David Thomas King School (22707 97 Ave NW)
This is a repeat of last year's hugely successful FREE event for those who are interested in learning more about what 'Orff' is about. This is geared for those who are new or fairly new to the Orff approach, or to even those who would like a taste of what an Orff Levels course may offer. Dr. Robert de Frece is a phenomenal teacher and professor in the Orff world. He will be presenting some wonderful ideas on planting musical 'seeds' that can lead to exciting growth in your students' music making! If you've never seen him in action, this is your chance! Please note that handouts will be digitally shared through email only to those who attend this event. To register, click HERE*!
*Our Chapter would appreciate any small donations so that we can continue to offer fresh and exciting events such as these.
