Upcoming events

Irina Shestopalova: "I receive letters from people who dived into the Orff-pedagogy recently; from people who are on the very beginning of their way, who want to learn the very basics and ways of development in Orff-pedagogy. I answer to everyone personally... I've understood that time has come for a personal meeting with the ones who want to study NOT online!!! Because Orff-pedagogy is not only about "watch and repeat". It's also about "get to know, look into each other's eyes, understand your partner, make a project together, be happy for your friends, be in a common creative space, feel the energy of working together!"
