Creative Approaches to Music Education 21st March 2015
Andrea Sangiorgio is a leading exponent of the Orff approach. He is based in Rome where he is director of the Centro Didattico Musicale. He works regularly in schools and is involved in training teachers. He studied at the Orff Institute in Salzburg where he regularly leads courses. He works internationally and in recent years he has led workshops in England for the Orff Society. He is studying at Exeter University and we are delighted that he can work with us again. Creative music making activities are aimed at the 5-11 age range and take into account teachers’ varied music teaching experience. Participants will make music through rhythm and movement; stories, speech and song; and classroom percussion instruments. Ways into improvising and composing are explored.
