Instructor

Ewa Wilczynski

Ewa Wilczynski has a Masters degree in Music Education from Marie Curie University in Poland. She has obtained Orff-Schulwerk Teachers Training Certification (Levels 1-3) from Utah State University and completed the International Summer Course 2014 in Carl Orff Institute in Salzburg, Austria. Ewa is an experienced preschool music teacher and has taught flute, piano, and music theory for over 30 years in Poland, New Jersey, and Utah. She is currently on the faculty of the Youth Conservatory at Utah State University and serves as director of the Cadenza Choir at Cache Children’s Choir. Ewa teaches music classes in the Stokes Nature Preschool and offers private lessons in her studio. She is also a founder of the program “Music for the Small and Tall” where she teaches early childhood music and movement classes. Ewa is a member of the Utah Flute Association and serves on the board of the Utah Chapter of the American Orff Schulwerk Association.

Ewa’s teaching philosophy is based on the Orff Schulwerk approach to teaching music. Carl Orff (1895-1982) was a 20th-century German composer, best known for his cantata Carmina Burana (1937). In addition to his career as a composer, Orff developed an influential method of music education for children. In this approach, students make music with activities that are enjoyable and natural for them such us songs, movements, improvisation and music games. Students learn musical concepts and improve their concentration as well as coordination and sensitivity to rhythm and tone through singing, dancing, and playing percussion instruments.
