Kodaly Level I


Kodály Teacher Training
Level I


In Level One 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 for returning to your own classroom in the fall!
