Kodály Level I


Kodály Teacher Training
Level I


We regret to announce that due to COVID-19, Kodály Levels I, II, and III are canceled for Summer 2020.

We are excited to be working with the University to run several online Supplemental courses. Full details will be available in the next few weeks. Current registrants should monitor their emails for more information. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


In Level I of Kodály training, students are introduced to the tenets of the Kodály philosophy. Students learn sequential lesson planning, the language of solfege and its uses in the classroom, folk music materials appropriate for grades PK – 2, and choral conducting. Students expand and develop their own musicianship skills through ear training, folk song analysis, and choral singing together.

This fun, intense and demanding experience builds life-long bonds between classmates, and will leave you more prepared than you could have dreamed of returning to your own classroom in the fall!
