Due to popular demand, the PSU Department
of Music and Summer Session are pleased to offer the Kodály Levels
I, II, III, and IV certification workshop for teachers, music supervisors
and curriculum coordinators, university faculty and students, and church musicians.
This program expands on
the philosophy, materials, and methods of Zoltan Kodály through the study
of musicianship, methodology, folk music, and music materials for K-8 curricula.
Coursework is approved
by the Organization of American Kodály Educators (OAKE). Participants
undergo intensive instruction in personal music pedagogic artistry while developing
interactive and developmentally appropriate materials and strategies -- based
on an understanding of philosophy, principles, and pedagogic sequence of the
Kodály method--using oral and written tradition repertoires for classroom
and chorus. Certificates of completion are issued upon successful completion
of each level.
Professor Debbie Glaze is the Administrative Director and Dr. Susan Brumfield is the Academic Director of The Kodály Certification Workshop at PSU.
The Kodály workshop
will officially begin on Sunday evening, July 28, 2013. The evening orientation
will include an overview of the program for new students, group choral activities,
an introduction to course materials, and access to the bookstore.
