The ANCOS Levels Courses provide intensive learning about the Orff Schulwerk approach to music and movement education.

The four levels involve developing skills and understandings in the pedagogy of Orff Schulwerk; specific techniques and strategies for inclusive teaching; the integration of movement and voice with playing percussion instruments; and an appreciation of the broader philosophy that underpins this approach.

VOSA Music Camp

Dates TBA

Come and join us for a weekend of singing, playing, laughing and fun.

This two-night camp is for educators and families who want to enjoy the experience of making music with others in an inclusive and relaxed atmosphere.

There’ll be opportunities for various activities outside of music for those who are adventurous, and for those just wanting some R&R.  This camp is a great opportunity to share ideas and repertoire, bring children into the world of making music together, and to get away from it all.

More information to follow.
