The Arizona Orff Chapter, the 39th chartered chapter of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association (AOSA), is a professional organization of music and movement educators dedicated to the creative teaching approach developed by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman. We provide professional development workshops for educators who believe that learning about music should be an active and joyful experience available to all children. Arizona Orff was established to promote the use of Orff-Schulwerk in Arizona and to support the professional development of our teachers. Through Orff-Schulwerk, our children use their voices to speak and sing, and their bodies to move and dance as they joyously progress from musical imitation to improvisation and literacy.
