Orff-Schulwerk Workshop

Every child loves to sing, clap, dance and make rhythms on whatever is at hand. Elementary school music teachers can receive specialized training in turning these natural human impulses into a lifelong love for music in their students at a special workshop scheduled for Saturday Oct. 29, 2011, at the University of Science and Arts in Chickasha.

The workshop is sponsored by the Oklahoma chapter of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association (AOSA) and the USAO music department.
