Training Institutions

Training as a “Kodály Teacher” is usually at the post-baccalaureate level either as part of a master’s degree or as a certificate. Several institutions around the country offer this training.

National Conferences

Each year the OAKE holds a conference during which lectures, concerts, teaching demonstrations, and exhibits provide teachers of music interested in Kodály’s concept of music education new ideas and resources. The National Conference Choir is composed of OAKE member’s students who audition from across the nation.
