Christoph Maubach  trained at the Orff Institute in Salzburg and had the privilege of being taught by mentors who were themselves appointed to positions by Carl Orff himself. After a stint as lecturer in music education at the Catholic University in Melbourne, Christoph decided to make Aotearoa/New Zealand his home. He is a vastly experienced Orff presenter who has run workshops in a range of countries. He is also a highly regarded conductor who has been associated with a number of choirs since settling in this country.

Jeremy Hantler is a Tauranga-based, Christchurch-born Music educator who teaches music at Matua primary and Otumoetai College, and runs workshops and bands in the weekends and evenings. He has travelled extensively to attend intercultural music and teaching workshops in Estonia, Sweden, Salzburg and France, and brings a wealth of experience to the classroom context. Jeremy still at the lights in simple melodies sung and played by our youngest musicians, and values the process and benefits of making meaningful music on the way to making aesthetically pleasing music.
