Kodály Musicianship Certification


Background

The Kodály Method, which is also referred to in practice as the Kodály Concept, is an approach to music education which was developed in Hungary during the mid-twentieth century. Varied pedagogical tools are utilized to reach the central philosophical objective; “Music belongs to everyone and is necessary for healthy human development.”

Purpose/Description

To improve and strengthen the individual musicianship skills through the use of movable “do” solfége, Curwen hand signs, and rhythm syllables, as well as to become familiar with folk and art songs through performance and analysis. The course will include ear training, part work, and sight singing with solfége in pentatonic and diatonic scales. The student will be able to complete one level (unit) per 2-week course (one per summer session).
