I have attended Dr. Ball's
workshops at the National Conferences and he
also came to St. Louis to present for our local Orff Chapter.
activities are very useful and his
props are very creative.
I have attended a workshop with Dr. Ball
and found that not only were the lessons presented excellent, but the concepts and ideas were also inspiring.
