Kodály Teacher Training
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.
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!
