The Heart of Florida Orff Chapter is a local non-profit organization for music
educators. It was recently chartered to serve the Gainesville, Ocala and
surrounding areas as one of the newest chapters with the American
Orff-Schulwerk Association (AOSA).

Heart of Florida supports and educates local 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
beyond the local school level.  Education professionals who are new to the Orff
Schulwerk process and don't have access to the barred instruments, will be
introduced to the Schulwerk Process, a highly successful tool for student

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. It
will be an experience you`ll always remember and foster friendships that last a
