Are you passionate about music education and looking for a unique and enriching experience this summer? Look no further than The Muse Summer School and Teacher Training! Our program, located at Chisnallwood Intermediate School in Christchurch, New Zealand, offers a transformative learning experience through the Kodaly approach. What is the Kodaly approach, you may ask? Developed by Hungarian composer and educator Zoltan Kodaly, this approach emphasizes the importance of music literacy and active music-making. It aims to empower students to become skilled, confident, literate, and creative music makers. At The Muse Summer School, we believe in the power of music to inspire, connect, and transform lives.
