Course Description

Students in this course will receive daily instruction in Kodály pedagogy, musicianship, folk music and classroom materials, conducting, and choir. Students will learn to design lesson plans for elementary-aged students (with a focus on second and third grade), in which children maximize their skill development while joyfully making music. The course will also introduce participants to folk songs, singing games, and choral repertoire appropriate for children from kindergarten through eighth grade. In addition, students will improve musicianship skills and the artistry of their conducting.

Learner Outcomes

Each participant will be able to demonstrate an understanding of Kodaly philosophy and educational principles through demonstration and written assignments including:

  • Rote teaching of songs and games
  • The development of lesson plans (yearly, monthly, daily)
  • Methodological sequencing of musical concepts and elements for upper primary grades
  • The development of children's singing abilities and part-work stills leading to development of choral ensemble abilities
  • Peer-teaching practicum and development of age-appropriate repertoire

Each participant will be able to demonstrate an understanding for the analysis, use and retrieval of folk music for the classroom
