Kodály Summer Institute

Music Education

The Kodály Summer Institute is open to students as a noncredit summer course. Students may also take the course for 3 graduate credits. Students who enroll in the Summer Masters Degree Program may take all three Levels of the NYU Kodály Summer Institute toward fulfillment of degree requirements, ending with both a Masters Degree in Music Education and Kodály Certification.

The Kodály Summer Institute is endorsed by the Organization of American Kodály Educators.

The Kodály Summer Institute serves both graduate musicians-educators and those who have worked in the field—all who would like to enrich their skills in creating curriculum and delivering pedagogy in a Kodály-inspired music classroom. Participants experience and collect traditional (folk) materials that can be sequenced with the intention of leading their young music makers toward the goals of music literacy and musical understanding. Course work includes:

  • Levels 1, 2, and 3; One Level Each for Three Summers
  • Noncredit or 3 Graduate Credits Available for Each Level
  • Preschool Through Secondary School Methodology
  • Ear Training Using Movable Tonic Solfege
  • Vocal Skills for Children, Adolescents, and Adults
  • Choral Ensemble
  • Choral Conducting
  • Materials and Skills for Starting a Chorus at Elementary and Middle School Levels
  • Traditional (Folk) Materials and Research
  • Movement through Singing Games
  • Extending Kodály to the Recorder
