First Iowa Orff

Welcome to First Iowa Orff

The North East Iowa Chapter of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association

Based in Cedar Falls, IA


Notes from the President:

Welcome to our FIO Website! This is definitely an interesting year with many challenges and opportunities ahead of us. As a chapter, we hope to provide learning experiences both virtually and in-person that can be immediately applied to your classroom. New Zoom presentations and social events have been added to help us stay connected and collaborating in the Fall, along with a City-Share workshop for music educators from similar regions to learn from each other in the Spring. Please email us at to send us more ideas of workshops and presentations that will help your professional growth!

Orff Schulwerk is a creative, student-centered, elemental approach to music and movement education. Our chapter is primarily elementary or multi-age music teachers from across the state who gather to share ideas, network, and invite national clinicians to present workshops!
