Participants will consider ways of engaging learners, choral practices and repertoire, strategies to facilitate vocal and instrumental improvisation as well as sharing in many practical experiences that support musical learning based on the Orff Schulwerk pedagogy.
Each day will include an all-in presentation including all participants, rotational sessions with keynote and main presenters with two smaller groups, and elective workshop sessions in even smaller groups. Each session will include practical activity as well as looking at how the Orff Schulwerk pedagogy combines elements of performing, moving and singing to encourage positive musical and sequential educational experiences. A series of academic papers related to Music education provision and research will also be presented on each day of the conference.
Dates: Monday 6 to Thursday 9 January 2020
