Kodály Music for Early Childhood

Children will explore active and creative musicianship through singing, movement, games and play with the principles of both world-renowned Orff and Kodály methods.  Core musicianship skills in pitch, rhythm, beat, listening, and voice are developed while imagination, creativity, and fun are nurtured.  These early experience provide an excellent foundation for lifelong musical and intellectual pursuits of all kinds. Parents are encouraged to join in the classes to learn the same songs as their children.
