Free Orff Schulwerk Music Workshop

First Presbyterian Church of Dearborn is sponsoring an Orff Schulwerk workshop for children age 6 and older from June 25 – 29, 2012.

Children will learn some basic music skills using pitched instruments designed by Carl Orff, First Presbyterian Church’s set of hand chimes and non-pitched, rhythm instruments.

Students are invited to bring recorders if they have them and any band or orchestra instrument they play. Recorders will be available for loan or purchase at the workshop.

The class will be taught by veteran vocal music teacher, Jane Lewy. Ms. Lewy has taught music for the Dearborn Public Schools for 30 years. She has a Bachelors Degree in Music Education with Orff Schulwerk training and a Minor in Integrated Creative Arts from Western Michigan University and a Master’s Degree in Choral Conducting from Oakland University. Jane Lewy has completed three levels of Orff Schulwerk training.
