Forestville Union School District features
a K-6 Enrichment Program of Music, Movement, Art and PE
Students have music classes twice weekly
in an “Orff” program. The Orff Schulwerk, or simply the Orff Approach, is a developmental approach used in music education. It combines music, movement, drama, dance, and speech into
lessons that are similar to child‘s world of play.
It was developed by
the German composer Carl Orff (1895–1982) and
colleague Gunild Keetman during the 1920s. The Orff Approach is now used throughout the world to teach students in a natural and comfortable environment. The term “schulwerk” is German for (literally) “school work”. Forestville is committed to the performing arts!
