The American Orff-Schulwerk Association is a professional organization of educators dedicated to the creative music and movement approach developed by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman.

Our Mission is:

  • to demonstrate the value of Orff Schulwerk and promote its widespread use;
  • to support the professional development of our members; and,
  • to inspire and advocate for the creative potential of all learners.

There are 96 local chapters of AOSA offering frequent opportunities to network and participate in professional development. AOSA members receive a subscription to our publications, are eligible for scholarships and grants, and have on-line access to classroom resources and other member benefits.
