We are a professional organization of 60+ music educators from around Kansas.
KOC is a local chapter of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association.
Welcome to the Kansas Orff Chapter website!
We are so glad to have you with us. The Kansas Orff Chapter is a group of music educators who are committed to providing high quality music experiences to our students. Singing, dancing, playing, creating are all hallmarks of an Orff classroom. Our chapter has three workshops each year: a two-day workshop in July, a one-day workshop in October and a one-day workshop in January. We hope to be in person for our October and January workshops this year but we are keeping a close eye on the Covid-19 developments in Kansas. Please look to our “workshops” section of our website or our Facebook page for the most up to date information.
Our chapter supports the Orff Schulwerk Certification Course at Baker University each summer. The Kansas Orff Chapter offers scholarships to members for these training sessions. We also offer a scholarship to first time attendees to the American Orff Schulwerk Association (AOSA) national conference/convention. The next conference will be held in North Charleston, SC on November 3-6, 2021. We are excited to host the 2022 convention in Kansas City! Mark your calendar!
You do not have to have completed levels to attend any of our workshops. Our workshops are open to any person interested in providing a rich musical experience for students.
Please consider joining this amazing, wonderful group of dedicated teachers!
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
Viva la musica!
President, Orff Chapter
