It applies to all areas of music education, including early childhood, primary, secondary, tertiary, studio, therapy or special education. Participants in the certification courses experience first-hand this way of learning and teaching, using the skills and techniques specific to the Orff approach.

Certification is attained through successfully completing all assessment tasks during the course and attending the required 36 face-to-face hours. It is a requirement that each Level is successfully completed before moving to the next Level.


Fees Include:

  • 36 hours of active, embodied learning (37 hours for Level 1)

  • Comprehensive course notes
  • Professional Development certificate
