Through group music making, and playful games that children love, students develop musical skill, understanding and literacy. This sequential approach develops children's musicianship and confidence. These skills will transfer to any instrument they take up. Kodály students become strong readers, excellent singers, with well developed aural skills and a lifelong passion for music.

About The Kodaly Approach
Kodaly inspired teaching is based on structured and sequential learning while giving children an engaging, joyful experience of music. Through singing games and rhymes, in the hands of a skillful teacher, children develop fluency and confidence that enables them to be lifelong musicians.
