Want to add a little sweetness to your program?

Bethany Ellen Elsworth has a banquet of ideas to immediately add into your current working environment. This past year has challenged music teachers with many different teaching restrictions – online, in-person, outdoors, physical distancing – but the Orff-Schulwerk is incredibly adaptive. Come learn some practical ways of using Orff no matter what situation you find yourself in. Consume a buffet of activities and indulge in the unique way this creative approach connects to the people you work with musically.  Care for a little dessert?
