The Heart of America Orff Chapter was founded in 1986 by local elementary music teachers who practice the Orff-Schulwerk process in their classrooms. HOA’s primary mission is to provide an opportunity for professional growth for all music teachers in our area. We are a Chapter of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association.
Orff-Schulwerk is a process of teaching music through speech, song, movement, dance, and a wide variety of instruments. It concentrates on creativity and play and seeks to allow the child to understand music by experiencing it joyfully in as many different ways possible.
