IMPORTANT CHANGES IN OUR GRADUATE PROGRAMME!

It is with great pleasure that we announce the result of several years of dedicated work on further developing our academic programmes at the Kodály Institute. A new two-year MA course in Kodály Music Pedagogy will replace the one-year programme established in 2007. This new graduate programme will commence in September 2017.
 
The extended programme was designed in order to provide new opportunities for our students by offering regular teaching practice in the partner schools of the Institute, and a wide range of specialisations including Early Childhood Music Education, Kokas Pedagogy, the Colourstrings Method and Choral Music Education. Students enrolled in this programme will benefit greatly from the opportunities created by a more in-depth development of musicianship, more time to complete research projects and more comprehensive training in teaching methods based on the Kodály Concept, which will include methodology of teaching solfege and music theory at secondary and tertiary level.
