Initiated and established by the Kodály Institute of the Liszt Academy of Music, Hungary, a brand new International Kodály Musicianship Certificate Programme has been launched this week. It is a comprehensive study and certification programme in Musicianship combined with an optional extra module in Teaching Methodology (Pedagogy).
The IKC Musicianship Programme is recommended for musicians, music educators and music lovers who wish to systematically develop their musicianship to the highest level possible, including their practical musical skills in the field of music theory (harmonic hearing, sense of form, musical analysis, etc.). The IKC Teaching Methodology Programme is recommended for those music educators who wish to apply Kodály’s educational principles and their newly developed teaching techniques acquired through the Programme in their professional work. The combination of these two programmes will have a significant impact on the quality and efficiency of your professional practice as a music teacher and will result in more joyful, meaningful, and experience-based music lessons for students.
