This course, with an emphasis on hands-on interactive processes introduces the Orff approach which is characterised by the integration of speech, movement and music with a focus on improvisation.

'The presenters brought a wealth of knowledge and experience of the Orff Schulwerk  and delivered the course with energy and a sense of fun.  They provided a learning context in which we were constantly involved in applying new ideas and exploring the principles of Orff Schulwerk through improvising, arranging, composing, and participating in ensemble work'.
