First Iowa Orff

Welcome to First Iowa Orff

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

Based in Cedar Falls, IA

2020-2021

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 firstiowaorff@gmail.com 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!

Workshop location:
