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.
