Music at Shepherd: The Shepherd University Department of Music is offering Kodály courses this summer.

The Kodály method is an approach to music education that was developed in Hungary during the mid-20th century.

Kodály Level I, Kodály Level II, and Kodály Level III will take place July 2 through 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Frank Center.

The daily schedule includes musicianship, ear training, sight singing, pedagogy, folk song literature, and special topics, including conducting, folk dance, instruments, and choir.

The courses are available for graduate credit for both degree and non-degree seeking students.

At the heart of the Kodály method is his belief that music literacy is the right of every human being. Kodály stressed that anyone who is capable of reading language is also capable of reading music.
