Carl Orff and Orff Schulwerk
Elemental music is never music alone but forms a unity with movement, dance and speech. It is music that one makes oneself, in which one takes part not as a listener but as a participant.Carl Orff Institute
Orff Schulwerk is a creative, multi-disciplinary approach to Music, Dance and Speech Education. Drama, visual arts and other expressive art forms are also incorporated within the approach.
