What is Kodály?
The great Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodály believed that singing is the primary musical response of children. Beginning with folk songs, children are introduced to the world of art music, from which they develop skills, insight, singing, and analysis to sustain them throughout a lifetime of music appreciation and music making. The study of the Kodály method explores this unique approach to teaching music to children through song and movement.

2014 Program Highlights:

Earn Your Certificate in Kodály! (Levels I-II-III)

A Certificate in Kodály is a powerful professional development and career enhancement. Certificates are awarded upon successful completion of LEVEL III.

At Mason, you have the choice of taking Kodály Courses "for credit" and receiving 3 graduate credits for each Level (applicable towards the Masters in Music Degree), or enrolling for "non-credit". While each has different requirements, BOTH paths lead to Certificate awards!

Level courses are also eligible for TEACHER RECERTIFICATION POINTS in many elementary school systems. Check with your county for verification!

Supplemental courses in Kodaly and Orff Schulwerk are also offered, providing you with great opportunities to build upon your knowledge and experience.

Final Sharing Session on Friday, July 25th

Level course participants will have the opportunity to present a final "Sharing" in the de Laski Performing Arts Building, demonstrating the connection of skills and techniques gained during the program. Feel free to invite family and friends!
