Kodály Certification Courses: Levels I, II, and III
July 6 - 17, 2020
Due to COVID-19 Pandemic
Based on ongoing state and federal recommendations to reduce the spread of coronavirus, Rider University announced that all Summer I courses would move to remote or alternative instruction. As we cannot deliver this course remotely, we are canceling it for this year. We very much hope to see you next year.
Our Westminster Choir College Kodály levels provide unique experiences that support music educators in planning for enacting practices relevant to K-12 educators. Join us for two weeks of music making, pedagogical thinking, personal growth, collaboration, and fun!
In this program, educators will:
Integrate traditional Kodály pedagogy with 21st century educational approaches that are student-centered and promote musical engagement and thinking outside of the classroom
Experience a range of music including folk music from various cultures, popular music, singing games, and choral repertoire
Develop vibrant lessons that promote students’ musicianship skills while incorporating broad musical styles/genres, technology, and creative thinking practices
Complete assignments individually and in small groups, drawing from the rich knowledge of other participants in the course as well as the instructors
Improve personal musicianship and conducting skills
Sing in a combined choir of all levels with a highly accomplished, well-known choral director
Socialize with other teachers—both local and from across the county—to form strong professional relationships and friendships
All classes are held on the Westminster Choir College campus in Princeton, NJ from 8:00am - 4:45pm. Classes will be held in the new Marion Buckelew Cullen Center
$1,250 non-credit/$2,145 with 3 graduate credits
