A Terrific Professional Event to start your school year!

The Victorian Orff Schulwerk Association (VOSA) is part of a world wide movement of music educators which draws on the principles of the German composer Carl Orff, adapting these to the Australian situation in a program of workshops, courses and conferences. VOSA is based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and was formed in 1977.  VOSA is linked to ANCOS, the Australian National body representing Orff-Schulwerk.

“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.”
