Alberta Orff is a chapter of Carl Orff Canada, a national non-profit organization of music teachers dedicated to delivering the best music education to our students. We offer members professional development, resources, and a network of like-minded educators.
We use the composer Carl Orff’s child-centered, dynamic approach to music education where children learn through doing, exploring, and improvising. Orff’s philosophy brilliantly combines the elements of speech, rhythm, movement, dance, and song so that all children can succeed.

Since the beginning of time, children have not liked to study. They would much rather play, and if you have their interests at heart, you will let them learn while they play; they will find that what they have mastered is child's play.
