Orff Teacher Training Courses
Teacher Education Courses, known as levels courses, provide the depth of understanding of Orff Schulwerk that daylong workshops just begin. A comprehensive three-level curriculum comprised of pedagogy, recorder and movement is designed to develop the musicianship, creativity and teaching strategies of the adult learner. Completing the courses and gaining certification will give the teacher clarity and continuity to implement Orff Schulwerk into the 21st Century classroom.
The courses are offered across the country at different times during the summer. They are usually 60 credit hours in length and take two weeks to complete. Each level has different requirements and the course work is very rewarding.
This year, NEAOSA is awarding up to two $500 Levels Scholarships to help defray the cost of the actual course. The requirements are as follows:
1. You must be an active member of NEAOSA.

Note: If unexpected circumstances arise that prevents you from taking the course, you must return the scholarship to the chapter.
