THANK YOU to Amanda and Sean for an exciting and valuable day of

singing, moving, playing, creating, and music making in Brandon

The MOC is committed to advocating for Carl Orff's approach to music education, an approach that uses speech, song, movement, the playing of various instruments, and listening.
