Tim Wiegand graduated from Syracuse University with a BA in Music Education, and received his Masters Degree with an “emphasis in Orff-Schulwerk” from The University of Nevada Las Vegas. Tim has been teaching Elementary General Music in the Clark County School District for over 21 years and is a regular presenter for school district staff developments. Tim directed performance groups at the 2002 AOSA Conference. In 2004, 2005, 2010, 2013 and 2015 Tim also presented sessions at the AOSA National Conference. Tim has been presenting Orff workshops all over the country and Canada since 2004. Being a percussionist in the field of Orff-Schulwerk has been a natural fit for Tim.
Tim’s workshop is titled: “Energize Your Music Room then Light Up the Stage!”
For this workshop he will be presenting a continuation of his 2010 National Conference session titled “Engaging Games, Activities that Work”. In this two part workshop you can expect to walk away with several practical, creative classroom lessons that will energize and motivated your students to participate like never before. We will then experience some original performance pieces for choirs, recorder clubs, dance teams, and mallet ensembles intended to raise the level of students’ musicianship. Along the way Tim will share some great percussion techniques, classroom management ideas, and give examples of incorporating technology into your performances.
**All workshops will be held at Crane Elementary School, 85 Shell Edge Drive, Henrietta NY 14623
