Purposeful Pathways Course One: Composition and Improvisation

We are so excited to announce that after months of work behind the scenes, our very first Teaching With Orff online course is ready for you!

In this course you’ll observe six lessons for young musicians in workshop format from Purposeful Pathways: Possibilities for the Elementary Music Educator, Book 1, along with related commentary. Author Roger Sams models how to cultivate early skills in music literacy, composition, improvisation, and dance making through an integration of Orff Schulwerk, Kodály, and eurhythmics.

Roger Sams has helped music teachers around the world to discover their potential and become better educators by using tools and techniques he curated over 31 years of teaching music in public and private schools. Now you can access Roger’s training on your own schedule and learn what educators around the world have been raving about for years. He truly makes professional development personal.

We invite you to consider this as part of your professional development. Upon successful completion of this course, you may request a certificate for 21 hours of professional development contact time. In addition, you have the option to receive graduate credit through Ashland University for an additional fee.

      Hi Suppatra!
      This online course includes six lessons for young musicians (likely first and second graders) in workshop format from Purposeful Pathways Book 1, along with related commentary.
      There is not currently online certification available for Orff levels. Certification will require an investment in official levels training. More information on AOSA approved certification courses can be found here https://aosa.org/professional-development/teacher-education-courses-summary/

    I am very interested. I have taking Orff Level I and II. I need some college credit to renew my teaching certificate and would love more Orff knowledge. When I clicked onto Ashland Univ. website I can’t find the course to register and pay. Can you help with that?
