Workshop Description: Join Kate Bright as she takes you around the world in 80 beats! In this workshop, participants will explore the world of the Orff process and find new ways to sing, say, move, and play - with a special focus on the recorder. By using simple speech patterns, folk dances and easily created/obtainable manipulatives, teachers will learn how to process rhythms inside and outside the world of 4/4.
