W18 Fun with Kodály Teaching

Patsy Seddon

Merchiston Workshops - Workshop Space


In 2005 Patsy encountered the inspiring educator Lucinda Geoghegan and was set on the path of learning about the music teaching philosophies which collectively have come to be known as ‘The Kodály Method’.  Zoltan Kodály (1882-1967) inspired many of his protégés to help develop a person’s musicality from their own natural folk song and singing games.  Aural methods are emphasised but with sights set on music literacy.  Patsy completed the British Kodály Academy’s course, Sound Progressions, in October 2008 and has been having fun with the ‘method’ for NYCoS (National Youth Choir of Scotland) and in schools ever since.
