Another precious country of the Kodály movement has reached a significant user count on the Kodály HUB, last week Ireland has hit 300. If you project this figure to the population data, Ireland arrives to the leading position worldwide in terms of HUB users per capita, thanks to the high number of teachers and musicians influenced by the Kodály-conceptand, the institutions in Ireland actively promoting it, or taking part in international projects such as the PRESTO.
We are happy to announce that the user count in Australia has reached 300, this reflects Australia's leading position in the East-Asia and Pacific region in terms of the promotion of the Kodály-inspired music education principles.
