Christoph Maubach

Christoph Maubach migrated from Germany to Australia in 1979 after completing the 'A' Course at the Orff-Institute in Salzburg. From 1980 onwards he conducted many Orff music education workshops throughout Australia and in other parts of the world.

His contributions and his enthusiasm took him as a guest teacher to the Orff-Institute in 1991/1992 and to course work in Estonia, Greece, Switzerland, Taiwan and Germany.

In his early years in Australia Christoph also worked at Kingswood College Junior School and later at Melbourne Grammar Junior School. Since 1987 he has been a lecturer in Music Education at the Australian Catholic University. In 1981 Christoph became a founding member of the Shenanigans ensemble. The ensemble performed at the 1985 Orff-Symposium in Salzburg, in schools in Germany and toured Australia later in that year. Christoph continued his work with children over the years and also contributed to the Symposia in Salzburg in 1985, 1990 and 1995. Christoph serves on the Victorian Orff-Schulwerk Association Committee and on the Australian National Council of Orff-Schulwerk. In 1997 he has for the first time visited and contributed to an AOSA Conference with his colleague Jon Madin.
