Choral Pedagogy à la Kodály
Faculty: Darcy Morrissey and Kelly Foster Griffin
Week 2: July 13-17, 1:00-2:30pm PDT
Choral educators will explore how to incorporate the Kodály philosophy into their choir program from planning to performance. By the end of this course you will have the tools to: (1) create a year-long plan, beautifully sequenced and customized for your choir; (2) arrange a choral piece for your choir based on compositional devices suited to your choir's abilities; (3) create differentiated monthly challenges through your performance repertoire that will spark your choristers' individual musicianship development; (4) analyze choral music in depth to create lesson plans that spark discovery and more informed and inspired performance; and (5) select high quality choral repertoire.
