COMMENTS FROM LAST YEAR

“The highlight of the year for me”
“Invaluable to both my teaching and my personal development”

Solfège Musicianship Workshops

These compulsory classes every morning will give all participants support for their own personal musicianship training. When music is learned using Kodály’s approach, skills vital to advanced music making such as “inner hearing”, rhythmic coordination and harmonic hearing are strongly developed from the beginning. The approach is relevant for instrumental teachers as well as class music teachers, specialists and non-specialists alike. There will be the option of completing a module accredited by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
