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 32-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.
