Welcome to the Treasure State Orff Chapter!
2020 Fall Workshop with Kris Olson
September 19th, 9:30-11:30 am (MST)
Our Fall workshop will be held virtually for the first time ever! This is a great opportunity for people who may not normally be able to travel across our beautiful, but huge, state. Please consider joining us! Once you have registered, directions on how to access the video conference will be emailed to you.
The Moving Classroom
Whether you’re in a classroom in 6 foot squares or on a computer in 12 inch squares, whether you’re singing your hearts out over the internet or silenced by masks and safety protocols, my goal is to offer something useful for everyone. We will focus on getting kids moving to help them tap into their musicality and creativity. For our youngest students, we’ll explore adapted folk dance, fanciful finger plays, and the world of pretend. For our older students we’ll explore body percussion and small movement challenges.
