Doug Goodkin is a music educator and proponent of Orff Schulwerk, a dynamic approach to music education. His vision of an education that meets the imaginative, spiritual and humanitarian promise of each child was formed during three decades of teaching music. Doug is currently in his 40th year at The San Francisco School, where he teaches music and movement to children between three years old and eighth grade. He regularly gives workshops for Orff Chapters throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as presenting at State and National Conferences. He is the author of eight books and has an ongoing blog titled "Confessions of a Traveling Music Teacher." He is particularly known for connecting the principles of Orff Schulwerk to a wider world of practices and ideas—jazz, world music, poetry, school community-building, brain research, human health and culture, social justice and more.
