Kate Williamson, a K-6 music specialist and Orff Schulwerk instructor from Minnesota, leads a group of music teachers through a music and movement education class during an Orff Schulwerk Certification workshop June 19 at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. The Department of Music at UMSL sponsored the workshop, which attracted nearly 50 teachers from across the region. This approach to learning, developed by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman, builds musicianship through singing, playing instruments, speech and movement.

The photograph was taken by UMSL photographer August Jennewein and is the latest to be featured in Eye on UMSL.
