In association with the School of Arts Education and Movement, DCU, the Kodály Society of Ireland is delighted to announce details of the 2020 International Summer School - Active Music Making: The Kodály Approach. Led by renowned Hungarian and Irish tutors, the emphasis is on active, experience-based learning. In line with Kodály's teachings, singing is at the heart of the course.

This intensive professional development course is suitable for:

Through singing and active learning, participants will experience improvements in aural awareness, sight-singing, analytical understanding and general musical knowledge, choral singing, ensemble playing and performance skills.
Those involved in music education will be facilitated in deepening their knowledge and understanding of Kodály-inspired pedagogy, learn about new developments, methods and teaching ideas and gain a wealth of resources suitable for all levels and teaching contexts.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
This course made a huge impact on some of the topics.
I believe everyone who is into music teaching should do it at least once (the more the better) to improve themselves and to remember not to settle down on the same school prospectus? Year after year.
