Participants at all levels will enjoy enhancing their musicianship skills in this course using Kodály-endorsed pedagogical tools of moveable do solfa, rhythmic duration syllables, eurhythmics and more. A variety of singing activities, exercises, games and leveled-skill building activities will set everyone at ease. Participants will self-select into one of three levels. All levels will include activities to build sight-singing, intonation, part-singing, improvisation and audiation skills.
Group 1: For those unfamiliar with the Kodály approach and using moveable-do solfa. Focus on pentatonic music.
Group 2: For those who have completed level 1 or 2 Kodaly certification. Focus on diatonic music examples.
Group 3: For those who have completed level 3 Kodaly certification. Focus on modal music examples.
