Welcome to PGTAOSA!
The Pittsburgh Golden Triangle Chapter was founded on April 11, 1975 and was 35th chapter of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association (AOSA). PGTAOSA is organized by area music teachers to provide continuing education workshops with Act 48 Credit in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Orff-Schulwerk is an approach to early childhood, elementary, and middle school music education based on the teachings of German composer, Carl Orff, and his colleague, Gunild Keetman. Combining creativity, speech, movement, a variety of high quality repertoire, and the playing of instruments, the Orff approach is a child-centered, playful experience, producing children ready for success in all other curricula.
