St. George’s Church is pleased to offer an exciting new children's ministry--an Orff Schulwerk Music Class.
Orff Schulwerk is named for composer and music educator Carl Orff (1895-1982), and the German term “schulwerk” translates as “school work.”
In an Orff Schulwerk class, children learn the fundamentals of musicianship through singing, dancing, and playing with child-friendly instruments such as glockenspiels, metallophones, wood blocks, and recorders.
Whether a child has taken music lessons for years or is completely new to musical study, there are innumerable ways for him or her to grow and be challenged in an Orff class. In this class, students are encouraged to make music by using their God-given gift of imaginative play, and through this training, they are equipped to become life-long musicians and artists.
This class is open to all Dayton families! For more information, visit our Facebook page or Christin Rondeau.
