For questions about the certificate program, contact Dr. Mary Epstein (mepstein@kodalymusicinstitute.org).

KMI's focus is on improving the content and pedagogical knowledge of K-12 music teachers through content-rich areas of study based on the principles and philosophy of Zoltán Kodály. Participants improve their own musicianship by singing in both moveable do solfège and fixed letter names, conducting, and performing choral repertoire. Participants expand their pedagogical skills through singing/dancing multi-cultural folksongs, dances, singing games, jazz and classical art music; through researching, analyzing, and codifying musical materials; and through writing lesson plans and curriculum projects. Children attend on-site music classes/rehearsals that participants observe as live application of Kodálys principles. Music-teacher participants who successfully complete this institute will deepen their knowledge of the MA Arts Curriculum Framework concepts and skills as well as the MTEL music-teacher test content knowledge. Four concurrent levels are held each summer during the three weeks. KMI's full certificate, worth 20 graduate credits, is endorsed by the Organization of American Kodály Educators.

Vocal Vacation is a cross-cultural summer music choral festival where urban and suburban
children gather together for friendship and song. An innovative component of the Kodály Music
Institute, this one-week program for children Grades 4-8 provides in-depth artistic experiences.
Each student has a daily group music class taught via the Kodály approach, daily chorus practice,
and other arts-related activities such as folk dancing, recorder, and visual arts "treks" to local
museums. Music classes and chorus are taught by master Kodály educators and are observed
by teacher participants attending the Kodály Music Institute as part of their training.

Susan Glass

This workshop will introduce participants to a wide variety of materials appropriate to general music classrooms, and thus generate discussion about the continuing role of traditional music in the lives of communities, and how it connects to us and the students we teach. We will view and listen to, among others: Scottish women at work, African villagers greeting an American banjo player, Texas chain gangs and Sicilian village elders, and see how their life experiences are inherently a part of the music they share.

Woven inbetween the listening, we will learn songs, games, and dances from various cultures, highlighting their cultural contexts, and approaches to the teaching of this material in classrooms. These tunes were a reflection of people’s lives; an expression of the tragedies and celebrations they shared with others, weaved into the fabric of their everyday existence, By exploring the cultural, historical, and social origins of these materials, we will try to come to a deeper understanding of the people, the music, and how to teach it.
