Welcome to PGTAOSA

Welcome to the Website of the Pittsburgh Golden Triangle Chapter #35
of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association

PGT logoThe Pittsburgh chapter of AOSA 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.

Join us for our Saturday workshops with nationally known clinicians.
It will change how you teach music!!
