Transform your Piano Teaching with Orff & Trinity College London

Transform your Piano Teaching with Orff & Trinity College London

Susan Head PD

Sunday 5 November 10 am – 5pm

Forte School of Music, 119 Grange Rd, Allenby Gardens.

A Workshop combining the 2018-2020 Trinity College Piano Syllabus and the Orff Schulwerk Approach to Music Education

Unshackle your piano teaching from traditional methods.

Reinvigorate your studio and your students’ enjoyment of learning piano with a focus on exam preparation.

This one-day course will offer you (and your students) the opportunity to achieve more musical performances, enhanced learning, better memory as well as improving exam results.

You’ll be amazed how much fun you’ll have trying out these new teaching strategies and so will your easily distracted, screen driven students of today! You’ll learn strategies which stimulate student’s brains using the interactive and multi-sensory approaches of Orff-Schulwerk. The pedagogy underpinning this approach places equal emphasis on all the elements of learning music to create well-rounded musicians.

Play while you learn During each practical, hands-on session, presenters Susan Head and Paul Myatt will apply the Orff-Schulwerk approach (to music education) to piano teaching. The knowledge embodied in multi-sensory activities provides a rich learning environment for students as well as being fun.

Get skills to design creative, engaging, learning pathways for each student with “off the bench” activities that are easily transferred back to the keyboard. As all participants will sit at a keyboard and experience the power of the Orff approach to assist students participating in Trinity College exams, there will be limited places available. Book now.

  • Have FUN learning and experiencing the Orff approach.
  • Learn how to teach up to 3 pieces from Initial to Grade 4 of the Trinity college 2018-2020 Piano Syllabus using the Orff Approach.

What people have said about our recent workshop in Sydney:

“New ideas to improve my piano teaching and make lessons more interesting i.e up and away form the keyboard. Keeping creative ideas fun and simple”

“This workshop was refreshing, fun and informative. Both presenters are very experienced and knowledgeable and I highly recommend this to any teachers who teach groups of young students.

“This Trinity workshop is excellent for providing the skills you need to develop mechanisms for group teaching.. Methods that invoke an interest that basiclly trick your stdent into learning music due to enthusiastic engagement”
