Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman have inspired a global movement in music education. Their approach encourages musical creativity based upon solid pedagogical principles and is structured on a sequential development of knowledge and skills.

The Orff approach is not a method, but rather a process that relies on imaginative teachers who are first and fore­most confident and creative musicians! The three-level Orff Certification Program at the University of Manitoba offers an intensive and exciting course of comprehensive instruction in Orff philosophy, pedagogy, orchestration and improvisation. As well as daily instruction in Basic Orff, particular attention is given to in-depth study of choral techniques, movement and recorder.
