Music Education Institute

The nationally endorsed Certification Program provided by the Kodály Association of Southern California (KASC) includes three levels of Kodály Music Education courses. Each level is three weeks for the pre-certification core courses of Pedagogy, Musicianship, and Choral Experience. Choral Experience consists of Choral Ensemble, with performance of repertoire for adult singers, and Choral Conducting, including basic to advanced conducting techniques for all levels of choir. Folk Song Research complements the core courses with analysis of folk song materials from many cultures. These four components interact, overlap, and enhance one another in the Kodály Approach curriculum. Completion of levels and a nationally endorsed Kodály Certificate can be achieved in three summers plus academic year offerings, or four summers. All coursework must be satisfactorily completed for Certification.
