About the Greater Tampa Bay Area Orff Chapter
The Greater Tampa Bay Area Orff Chapter (GTBAOC) is a local non-profit organization for music educators. It is affiliated with the American Orff-Schulwerk Association (AOSA).
GTBAOC supports the Orff Schulwerk philosophy of incorporating music, movement, and speech concepts as developed by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman. All of these concepts center around the development of the total child.
Membership in the Greater Tampa Bay Area Orff Chapter also provides opportunities for continual development of the teacher. Active participation in our area workshops will inspire creative musical growth. By associating with other talented music educators, you can share ideas at a professional level. Teachers who are new to the Orff Schulwerk process and don’t have access to the barred instruments, will be introduced to many other skills which still nurture the Orff process.
Begin a new musical journey for yourself and your students by becoming a member of the Greater Tampa Bay Area Orff Chapter.
The Greater Tampa Bay Area Orff Chapter History
In 1997/1998, our “Founding Father”, Tim Benton approached a few colleagues to form a new Florida Orff Chapter. After many brain storming meetings, the Greater Tampa Bay Area Orff Chapter was formed! Since August of 1998, the board has featured High Quality National Clinicians under the leadership of our past presidents.
