Are you passionate about music and looking to enhance your musical skills? Look no further than The Muse Summer School and Teacher Training! Our program is designed to empower students of all ages to become skilled, confident, literate, and creative music makers through the Kodaly approach. What is the Kodaly approach, you may ask? Developed by Hungarian composer and educator Zoltan Kodaly, this approach to music education emphasizes the importance of singing, ear training, and music literacy. It is a holistic and child-centered approach that aims to develop musicianship from an early age. At The Muse Summer School, we offer a range of opportunities for both teachers and non-teachers to learn and grow. Our teacher training program provides educators with the knowledge and skills to implement the Kodaly approach in their classrooms. Through workshops, lectures, and hands-on activities, teachers will gain a deep understanding of the Kodaly philosophy and practical strategies for teaching music. For those who are not teachers but still have a love for music, we offer a community music stream. This stream is open to anyone who wants to explore the Kodaly approach and develop their musical skills. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced musician, our program caters to all levels and provides a supportive and inclusive environment for musical growth.
