I LOVE this book. It deals with grief and grieving, in a sweet, subtle way and without talking directly about death or grief. It is lovely, full of color, and a gorgeous, vibrantly painted didgeridoo. Laurie and I had a good cry over pancakes reading the book (Laurie has recently experienced the loss of her mom) and then we wrote an activity that uses ipads, instruments, and we wrote a song to tie it all together. I am in love with it already and can't wait to share it. Hope all of you who are local can make it! http://www.piedmontorff.org/Amiee_Pfitzner___Laurie_Siegel__Flyer.pdf

Workshop March 7!
Cue the music.. "I'm so excited.. and I just can't hide it..."! Our local chapter of the American Orff Schulwerk Association (AOSA) is hosting a workshop Saturday, March 7 in Davidson, North Carolina! This is a fun one for me as I get to present with my music buddy, Laurie! I love working and creating with her; we are like two sides of a coin; one of us starts an idea, another one finishes it. I love creating with her!! The workshop is called "Putting it All Together: Sing, Move, Create, and Play.. with ipads, too!" Should be a very fun-filled, exciting and BUSY workshop!!! I am very excited about using the ipads and helping others to realize how to use them in the music room and, in particular, using them WITH the Orff Schulwerk Approach. Have you seen the book, 'Rabbityness"?
