This week my guest is David Beil, expert band director and host of the “Beyond the Clef” podcast. We share some of our personal critique stories and talk about why we take groups to festival (and other performances) in the first place.
Today we’re talking about the methodology of Orff.
If you’re like me, heavily trained in band/instrumental/secondary, then Orff means one of two things to you: some guy with a theory of education (though you probably can’t remember the exact details) and the person who wrote Carmina Burana.
While I understand that “Empowerment” can mean many different things to many different people, let me assure you this is a really great episode; so great I saved it for last – it was the final podcast we recorded in 2018.
