The Heart of Florida Orff Chapter is a local non-profit organization dedicated to the professional development of music educators. We serve the “Heart of Florida” area, including Alachua, Marion, Columbia, and surrounding counties.

We offer a series of workshops for a very reasonable price to dedicated professionals who are willing to invest their time in developing professionally.

The Heart of Florida Chapter supports and educates local music education professionals about the Orff-Schulwerk philosophy of incorporating music, movement, and speech concepts as developed by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman. All of these concepts encourage the development of the total child.

Heart of Florida members receive continual development of best teacher practices and a community of support within elemental music education. Active participation in our area workshops will inspire creative musical growth and develop professional friendships and networking opportunities. By associating with other talented music educators, you can share ideas at a professional level.

We encourage you to contact us and begin a new musical journey for yourself and your students by becoming a member of the Heart of Florida Orff Chapter.
