Kodály Inspired Classroom


My music classroom is inspired by the philosophies and teachings of Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodály.  First and foremost, we us the one instrument that we can take with us everywhere - our singing voice!  We sing mainly folk songs throughout each year, many of which have activities and singing games to go along with them.  Each folk song is chosen based on age appropriateness and musical content (rhythm, melody, form, meter, tempo, etc.).  If you are interested in learning more please ask me!  You can also find more specific information about Kodály classrooms on the Organization of American Kodály Educators page.
