COVID Safety Guideline: Please be assured that all in-person programs will follow strict safety protocols required by George Mason University and are subject to pivoting to all virtual platforms if health and safety conditions warrant. Required protocols will include masks, physical distancing, daily health checks, and more. Please visit our COVID Safety Guidelines for all in-person programs. We will be routinely updating the information as it evolves. Stay informed by visiting our website and looking out for email alerts and other Academy communications.


 

Level II Kodály training is based on the building blocks provided in Level I; Level I is a pre-requisite to this class.

In Kodály Level II, students add on to previous teaching skills by learning repertoire appropriate for grades 3 – 4. Students demonstrate more peer teaching of grade-appropriate skills and receive constructive feedback from teachers and classmates alike. The development of one’s musicianship skills continues through musicianship training, folk song analysis of songs in the extended pentatonic scale, choral conducting, and choral singing together using solfege as a skill for reading.

Level II is where students begin to “put it all together.” Suddenly, all the pieces that seemed separate in Level I start to make sense after a year of taking them to the classroom. Level II is a time of tremendous growth for our students with fun, creative materials and games to take home and use immediately!
