The Carl Orff approach of music education (Zagreb, Croatia)

Artistic Activities


In cooperation with the Croatian Association of Carl Orff, New Acropolis in Zagreb organized a lecture about the essential elements of Orff’s philosophy in musical education, and a workshop where adjusted musical instruments were made.

By combining different forms of music experience, participants had the opportunity to learn through speech, movement, dance, rhythm, singing and playing, about the essential principles of Orff’s musical and pedagogical approach.

The importance of music in the education and formation of a human being was mentioned already by Plato in the Republic: “Education in music is most sovereign, because more than anything else rhythm and harmony find their way to the inmost soul and take strongest hold upon it, bringing with them and imparting grace.”
