MUSIC EDUCATION WITH A KODÁLY EMPHASIS

Graduate students who have teaching experience and wish to expand their professional status will find the Master of Music degree at Silver Lake College both challenging and enriching. The 34-credit program consists of professional study of the Kodály Concept of Music Education, investigation into the history and philosophy of the Kodály movement and music education in general, and the development of musicianship skills.

The Master of Music in Music Education with a Kodály Emphasis was established at Silver Lake College in 1987 in response to the enthusiastic interest of hundreds of music educators who have studied Kodály Music Education at Silver Lake College over the past quarter of a century. Graduate music students come from all parts of the United States and many foreign countries.

Silver Lake College is pleased to welcome Dr. John Feierabend as the new Chair of the Kodály Summer Music Program.  Dr. Feierabend is considered one of the leading authorities on music and movement development in childhood. Dr. Feierabend is committed to collecting, preserving and teaching the diverse folk music of our country and using that folk music as a bridge to help children understand and enjoy classical music. Dr. Feierabend’s research has resulted in two music methods; First Steps in Music, a music and movement program for infants through elementary aged children and Conversational Solfege, a music literacy method for use in general music classes.
