Kansas Orff Chapter Workshops are open to anyone interested in learning about the Orff Schulwerk model. You do not need Orff Schulwerk certification to attend any of our workshops! Each workshop is designed to provide participants with the opportunity to engage in the learning activities. Detailed notes are provided so attendees can participate without worrying about taking notes. Graduate credit is available through Baker University. Workshop participants can receive one hour of graduate credit for attending “both” the October and January workshops. One hour of graduate credit is also available for those attending the two day Orff-n-Running workshop in late July or August.
