As a chapter of the American Orff Schulwerk Association, our main purpose is to provide a professional development community for elementary music teaching in the Florida Panhandle through workshops and study of the Orff approach. We host three to four workshops a year featuring local, state, and national leaders in the field of elementary education. Our members believe that great teachers never stop learning and that community is central to professional development.
We hope you will get to know us better through this website or, even better, by joining us at our next workshop!

We are very excited and appreciative that Mr. Arnold Burkhart donated these Orff instruments to TAOC! Mr. Burkhart was the first president of the American Orff-Sect, and we are very grateful for his generosity to our chapter. TAOC members may apply to this grant by completing the Burkhart Grant Application.
