About The Event

REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JULY 6, 2023

What: The nationally endorsed Certification Program provided by the Kodály Association of Southern California (KASC) includes three levels of Kodály Music Education courses. Each level is three weeks for the pre-certification core courses of Pedagogy, Musicianship, and Choral Experience. Choral Experience consists of Choral Ensemble, with performance of repertoire for adult singers, and Choral Conducting, including basic to advanced conducting techniques for all levels of choir. Folk Song Research complements the core courses with analysis of folk song materials from many cultures (not offered in summer 2023). These four components interact, overlap, and enhance one another in the Kodály Approach curriculum. Completion of levels and a nationally endorsed Kodály Certificate can be achieved in three summers plus academic year offerings, or four summers. All coursework must be satisfactorily completed for Certification. Full Kodály certification includes completion of three levels of Core and Folk Song courses.

For more information on individual courses, see our Course Information.

When: Classes meet July 3 to July 21 (no classes July 4th), Monday-Friday, from 8:30am-5:00pm, with a culminating concert on July 21st.
