Steinhardt's Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions is taking the summer off! Our acclaimed Summer Programs and Workshops won’t be offered in 2024 as we plan for more compelling and varied offerings in 2025 and beyond. Sign up to receive information about Summer 2025 as soon as it's available.
The NYU Steinhardt Kodály Summer Institute is open to students as a noncredit summer course. Students may also take the course for 3 graduate credits (different application process. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info). Students who enroll in the summer master's degree program may take all three levels of the NYU Steinhardt Kodály Summer Institute toward fulfillment of degree requirements, ending with both a master's degree in Music Education and Kodály certification (contact Dr. Jason Thompson, Director of Music Education, email@example.com).
The Kodály Summer Institute is endorsed by the Organization of American Kodály Educators.
The Kodály Summer Institute does not have any audition requirements, however, there are program-specific questions that you will need to complete within the online application.
Kodály Summer Institute Faculty
Following his folk song collecting with Béla Bartók in Hungary in the early 1900s, Zoltán Kodály had a vision—a monumental idea that music, like language, could be taught artistically using the authentic traditional (folk) materials of any given culture.
New York University remains the only campus in metropolitan New York offering Kodály certification on a noncredit and graduate credit basis.
