President’s Message

Welcome to the Kansas Orff Chapter website!

We are so glad to have you with us.  The Kansas Orff Chapter is a group of music educators who are committed to providing high quality music experiences to our students.  Singing, dancing, playing, creating are all hallmarks of an Orff classroom.  Our chapter has three workshops each year:  a two day workshop in July, a one day workshop in October and a one day workshop in January.  Due to Covid-19 our workshops will be on line for this year.

Our chapter supports the Orff Schulwerk Certification Course at Baker University each summer.  The Kansas Orff Chapter offers scholarships to members for these trainings.  We also offer a scholarship to first time attendees to the American Orff Schulwerk Association (AOSA) national conference/convention.  This conference occurs in different areas of the United States.  We are excited to host the 2022 convention in Kansas City!  Mark your calendar!

You do not have to have completed levels to attend any of our workshops.  Our workshops are open to any person interested in providing a rich musical experience for students.

Please consider joining this amazing, wonderful group of dedicated teachers!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Viva la musica!
