Texts on Theory and Practice of Orff-Schulwerk
from the Orff-Schulwerk Forum Salzburg
Basic Texts from the Years 1932 – 2010

Edited by Barbara Haselbach

Softcover book
345 pages

The authors of Orff-Schulwerk and their closest cooperators describe the basics of what has become unquestionable common knowledge of Elemental Music and Dance Pedagogy. Written in German and English, the selected texts present a necessary theoretical completion of the experiences of practical work. They give a foundation and justification of it.


These study texts are intended for all those attending introductory and further development Orff-Schulwerk courses, or who are wishing to explore and learn about it within the framework of a Music and/or Dance Education training, whether it be about its origins or the way it has evolved through time.  It is hoped they will inspire further individual thought and teaching.
