Quad City Kodaly Initiative

Participants will need to purchase a A-440 Tuning Fork available at West Music.

The Quad City Kodály Initiative (QCKI) course will explore the philosophy of Zoltán Kodály through five teaching modules based upon the components taught in training courses endorsed by the Organization of American Kodály Educators (OAKE).

The Musicianship Module (also known as “Solfege Boot Camp”) will develop and challenge participants’ musicianship skills. The Pedagogy/Methodology Module will focus on instruction in Kodály-inspired pedagogy through curriculum development and teaching strategies. The Research Module will provide guidelines for selecting and analyzing folk song, art music, and other music materials for use in the elementary music classroom. The Conducting Module will build upon current conducting skills with a focus on conducting patterns and gestures, score study and analysis utilizing a Kodály-inspired approach. The Special Topics Module will explore such topics as the principles of the Kodály Method, folk dancing and blending the Kodály Method with Orff-Schulwerk and Dalcroze Eurhythmics.

QCKI will give participants the motivation and confidence to implement Kodály-inspired instruction in the elementary music classroom.
