If you're a primary or instrumental teacher, and you've ever had your interest piqued to find out just what 'IS' the Kodály approach, come and find out soon!

 

My group of passionate Kodály educators, The Phoenix Collective, is excited to announce its new accredited course of Kodály training - ACKME (Accredited Certificate in Kodály Music Education).
All modules in 2021 are online and run over weekends. Sessions will be recorded for those unable to attend in 'real time' (we are in the UK).
Students can sign up for the full Certificate or attend individual modules as non-Certificate participants.
Modules will run in each calendar year so students can take them at times convenient to them.
There will be four core modules, three of which run in 2021, plus several optional modules which will launch in 2022. Completion of the certificate is open-ended.
The first core module - The Kodály Philosophy - is held on 13th and 14th February and the closing date for applications is 31st January. This will act as both an introduction to those new to the approach as well as a thought-provoking refresher for more experienced practitioners.
Tutors are highly experienced and enthusiastic leaders from the UK and Hungary.
If you have any queries, please ask here or send me a message.
Full information is on the courses page at www.thephoenixcollective.co.uk.

Didn't read the whole website - it was kind of hard on the eyes, so apologies if I missed the answer to this question - but I was wondering who did the accreditation? Is it purely a Kodaly thing or is it accredited by an external agency?

Are non-certificate students excempt fom the £75 booking/support fee even if they transfer to tbe certificate course? It doesn't say they have to pay it if they transfer to the certificate course.

The course is accredited by an external agency and yes, the £75 does have to be paid for students when they transfer to the full certificate.

Apologies if the website doesn't float your boat although most of our advertising is done elsewhere.  The site was professionally done but for now the organisation does not have the funds to approach someone new to start it from scratch.  

Anyone interested who doesn't wish to look at the website (!) is most welcome to send me or Cyrilla a PM.

The course is accredited by the CPD Service.

 

I think Bagpuss has answered your other questions.

Just a heads-up that the closing date for applications for the first module, 'The Kodály Philosophy' is tomorrow - January 31st.

 

We have a hugely varied mix of students, including one in Kuala Lumpur, one in Portugal and one in Spain.   Some are primary teachers, some are instrumental teachers.  There are a couple of forum members plus some who have come via EPTA and The Curious Piano Teachers. 

 

This first module (which also acts as a stand-alone weekend) will be of interest to anyone who would like to know more about 'this Kodály thing' and also as a refresher/re-invigorator for those who already have some knowledge.

 

We have input from two Hungarian tutors, my co-author David Vinden, and Yours Truly.   Plus another lovely person teaching one of the musicianship groups.   Bagpuss is one of the Support Crew on this occasion!

 

We'd love to see you there.
