The Orff Schulwerk Association of South Australia is a professional organisation of classroom music teachers who use the creative teaching approach of music and movement developed by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman.
We are joined by our belief that learning about music – learning to sing and play, to hear and understand, to move and create – should be an active and joyful experience.
OSASA and its members are also affiliated with the Australian National Council of Orff Schulwerk Inc. (ANCOS).
