The Orff Echo Editorial Board is soliciting articles for the Winter 2018 issue, “Orff Internacionále.” We invite various types of submissions such as: (1) philosophical and theoretical work reflecting the application of the Schulwerk in classrooms around the world; (2) interpretation and adaptation of Orff pedagogical techniques and instrumentation for world and multicultural music teaching; (3) empirical and/or historical research related to the Schulwerk from various multicultural and world music perspectives.

We encourage writers to consider the following questions:
1. How is Orff Schulwerk serving the worldwide community?
2. How are teachers applying the Orff approach and educational philosophies to traditional music instruction in the United States and around the world?
3. What philosophical questions arise from the various interpretations of Orff Schulwerk?
4. What resources exist for teachers in the United States and around the world for teaching and learning world music and the Schulwerk?
5. How are teachers adapting the Orff instrumentarium to teach multicultural/world music?
6. What connection exists between Orff Schulwerk and teaching world music?

The Orff Echo Editorial Board is always interested in original research and informative articles covering all aspects of Orff Schulwerk and music education such as movement, play, singing, assessment, and curricular planning. Our format allows for submissions dedicated to your area of interest in addition to our featured topic.
