(2.a) METHODOLOGY with Esther HARGITTAI
Singing-based Music Education with the Fixed Doh System
Duration and length of classes: 10 x 90 mins
Day & time: Fridays 2-3:30 pm CEST

In this course we will be focusing on singing-based musical training for primary-school children (lower and upper primary) growing up in a “fixed-doh country.” We will use all the benefits of the Kodályian way: musical reading and writing, ear training, skill training - such as inner hearing, part work, musical memory, improvisation, movement and more – a logical, holistic, step by step approach, singing games and a rich, beautiful singing repertoire. We will put a special emphasis on singing with sol-fa using creative ways of weaving it into the fixed-doh musical environment. In that way we will be able to benefit from the use of solmisation. At the same time there will be opportunities for improving your own musical skills with the same way. 

(2.b) METHODOLOGY with Réka TÓTH
Digitalisation of Kodály-inspired Music Education

Duration and length of classes: 10 x 90 mins
Day & time: Thursdays 1:30-3 pm CET

Move mi Music is an application based on the Kodály Concept and the Hungarian musical education practice. This application is the result of the dedicated efforts of teaching staff at the Kodály Institute of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music and AutSoft plc in finding effective ways to develop young children's musical skills in the field of musical writing, reading and part-singing. The effectiveness of the musical tasks presented here is guaranteed by significant music pedagogical knowledge and experience acquired in the Hungarian school music education practice hallmarked by Zoltán Kodály's name during the past few decades. The sessions will introduce the application in details and provide many opportunities to practise the use of this valuable teaching tool.
