Orff-Schulwerk Certificate


The Orff Schulwerk Certificate Program, based on pedagogy employing Carl Orff’s music coupled with movement, provides music educators with a curriculum for teaching music through active music-making. This may include singing, movement, instrumental ensemble playing and use of special instruments. Special topics include multicultural music traditions, folk dance and storytelling.

Beginning in Summer 2015, the Orff Schulwerk Certification Program will be offered directly by the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Orff Schulwerk Association (LA Orff). Registration for Cal State LA academic credit will still be possible, but optional, and additional to the program participation fee. Please begin your queries by consulting LA Orff directly. See the LA Orff Summer Courses page here.

For all queries about Summer Orff in Los Angeles, please contact the Program Director, Dr. David Connors.
