Summer Workshop with Andrea Sangiorgio

August 1, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


Join us during the Orff Level 1 class for a rare opportunity to workshop with Andrea Sangiorgio, a leader in the Orff-Schulwerk community and Professor of Elementary Music Education at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich, in collaboration with The Orff Institute! No need to travel to conference or to Munich to see a master from The Institute, POSA is hosting Sangiorgio for a full day of Levels work and workshop fun, and you’re invited!


Prof. Dr. Andrea Sangiorgio has been Professor of Elementary Music Education at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich since December 2015. Half of the endowed professorship is sponsored by the Carl Orff Foundation and the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich.

With the CDM and in collaboration with the Roman University “Tor Vergata”, since 2007 he has been leading a one-year Orff-Schulwerk training course for music teachers, kindergarten teachers and primary school teachers.

He is an international specialist in music and movement teacher education (Italy, Germany, Austria, Spain, Finland, France, Russia, Lebanon, England, Ireland, South Korea, Czech Republic, China, Taiwan, Switzerland, Iran, Turkey, Australia, Greece), with contributions to collaborative music making with Orff and percussion instruments, children’s voice training, group improvisation and musical creativity, and the cognitive-psychological aspects of musical learning.

Sangiorgio will be presenting Basic Pedagogy to the Level 1 at Columbia Valley course participants from 8:30am-12:00pm the morning of August 1, and then will be offering an afternoon workshop to local music educators from 1:00-4:30pm! Those who would like to attend are welcome to both the morning and afternoon session, but must keep in mind that the morning session will be geared towards Teacher Education Level 1 Pedagogy and will include the course participants, while the afternoon session will be a more typical workshop session.

You do not need to be signed up for Level 1 to attend this workshop. You do not need to be a POSA member to attend. In light of the rare and special nature of this session, there are no member/non-member prices, everyone is welcome for a member workshop rate!
