The 2-year MA Course in Kodály Music Pedagogy is the Liszt Academy Kodály Institute’s flagship programme, offering the highest level of professional training currently available in this field in the world.
What makes this programme unique and truly exceptional is the internationally sought-after faculty, possessing vast experience and expertise on the Kodály concept implemented throughout the full spectrum of musical training, from early years to university level.
The variety of specialisations available for students wishing to enrich their general understanding of Kodály-based music education creates wonderful opportunities for immersion in the fields of:
- Early Childhood Music Education
- Primary, Secondary Music Education
- Tertiary Music Education
- Solfége Methodology
- Choral Music Education
- Kokas Pedagogy
- Colourstrings Method
Regular visits to the Institute’s partner schools, where Kodály-based school music education can be experienced in its most authentic form, together with teaching practices of graduate students all contribute to the harmonious blending of theoretical understanding and practical skills. The study programme is complemented by research projects tailored to the specific interests of the students.
Starting from September 2021 we plan to fully return to in-person teaching. As health, safety and well-being of our staff and students will remain our highest priority we may be opting for a hybrid mode of teaching, which will include a mix of offline and online learning in an optimum combination.
As a formal requirement, all our full-time students enrolled in one of our courses (BA, MA or non-degree), are expected to live in Kecskemét, Hungary during the academic year. This requirement has been set in order to ensure that students’ time spent with us is as rewarding and fulfilling as possible.
