Meg Tietz Workshop
February 8 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$20 – $65
When people talk about Orff Schulwerk, especially if they are not Orff teachers themselves, the description often centers around the use of the Orff Instrumentarium. However, while these instruments are delightfully enjoyed by children and adults alike, they are only a fraction of what Orff is all about. Orff teachers know that the truly magical part is really in the process, the playful exploration and discovery that is inherent within the Schulwerk. In fact, although many of the pieces found in the primary source materials of Orff and Keetman are written for the barred instruments, they are not limited to use in that media alone. This workshop will explore pieces, poetry, and activities through all four media: singing, saying, dancing, and playing, and through each of the four levels of experience: imitation, exploration, improvisation and creation.
