Musical Research & Education

In January 2010, thanks to the collaboration of the Carl Orff Foundation of Diessen (Germany) and The Goethe Institute of Dakar (Senegal), a workshop for the training of Senegalese music professors was organized at the headquarters of the latter. The instructor was Polo Vallejo, in whose classes were laid out the contents, methodology and objectives based on the educational ideas of Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman, as articulated in the Orff Schulwerk. According to this Method, music, movement and improvisation are integrated in basic education.
