British Kodály AcademyPARTNER
The British Kodály Academy (BKA) promotes the advancement of British music education, following the teachings of the Hungarian educator and composer Zoltán Kodály.
The Kodály Approach – musicianship through singing – provides tools to develop fundamentals such as pulse, inner hearing, good tuning and sight-reading ability. It’s said to be life-changing!
The structured, sequential learning process is based on an understanding of how musical skills and concepts are absorbed through practical activity and singing, using appropriate repertoire – from simple children’s songs to complex art music.
The British Kodály Academy was founded by Cecilia Vajda. More can be found out about her here Cecilia Vajda – Founder – British Kodály Academy (kodaly.org.uk) and also about the Cecilia Vajda Memorial Scholarship which offers some financial support for students wishing to attend BKA Summer Schools (when these can take place again).
Music belongs to everyone and our courses are open to all: those wanting to develop their own singing, musicianship and conducting skills; whilst teachers are helped to develop skills and confidence to deliver music lessons at all levels: Early Years, KS One, Two and beyond – to Higher Education and Instrumental teaching.
