Tim Wiegand was born and raised in upstate N.Y. and attended Syracuse University to receive his BA in Music Education. Tim began teaching K-5 elementary music in 1997 in the Clark County School District in Las Vegas, where he was named C.C.S.D. new teacher of the year. Tim quickly found that Las Vegas is renowned for their amazing Orff Curriculum and teacher training based out of the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Tim received all three Orff levels and his MMEd from UNLV.
In 2004, 2005, 2010, 2013 and 2015 Tim presented sessions at the AOSA (American Orff-Schulwerk Association) national conference. Tim has also been an active clinician around the country and in Canada. As a percussionist Tim has found a deep passion for composing in the elemental style of the Schulwerk.
The German pronunciation of Tim's last name was the inspiration for our company's name. Viegansong's sole purpose is to further the popularity of the Schulwerk, and offer other teachers the opportunity to enjoy and benefit from Tim Wiegand's materials. We look forward to publishing more of Tim's books so check back to the website often! If you are interested in booking Tim for a workshop please contact us for rates and availability!
