Our Vision

The Victorian Orff Schulwerk Association seeks to:

  • Offer inspiring leadership in Orff Schulwerk pedagogy
  • Provide inclusive professional learning opportunities in Orff pedagogy for teachers in Victoria and beyond
  • Support and encourage teachers from diverse contexts to learn, improve and enhance the pedagogy of music and movement
    teaching through modelling the teaching of Australian educators and those from the broader international Orff Schulwerk community
  • Build a collaborative, like-minded community of educators who support one another through making and teaching music and movement that can enrich and enliven education for all learners and contribute to a better world.
  • Honour the cultural legacy and ongoing culture of Indigenous Australians.

Diversity and inclusion

VOSA is committed to supporting a diverse and inclusive membership, and supporting the dignity and well being of all.

“In a child’s life, it is often the music teacher who will be remembered above all others once the child has left school. Music teachers have the potential to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, sparking imaginations at every turn. You never know when this happens with a child, which makes every lesson special, no matter how hard it may seem at the time. Music teachers are the salt of the earth.”
