Development of musicianship (solfege, harmony etc.) training through singing (KERESZTES)


During the seminar, according to the Kodály-based education, we are trying to achieve the musical competences mainly through singing. Through singing the numerous examples taken from the music literature and with the proper harmonic, mnemonic, etc. exercises, we try to develop the skills of sight reading, harmonic hearing, to develop a significant elasticity of inner hearing and musical mind, etc. – all that with a vocally approached, conscious analysis. The musical style (Renaissance, Baroque, Viennese Classicism or Romanticism) will be chosen according to the demand of the participants. One of the main purposes of the course is to introduce the participants into the proper and effective use of relative solmization (or movable doh), a very important tool of developing the sense of tonality in the Kodály Concept.

Language of the seminar: English or Italian 


Corso complesso delle soggetti musicali (solfeggio, armonia, etc.) attraverso il canto


Durante il corso – secondo l’educazione basato sulla Concezione di Kodály – cerchiamo di acquisire le competenze primariamente attraverso il canto. Cantando i numerosi esempi musicali della letteratura musicale e con apposti esercizi mnemonici, armonici, etc. cerchiamo di sviluppare le disponibilità della lettura a prima vista, dell’orecchio d’armonia, sviluppare una notevole elasticità dell’orecchio interno e della mente musicale, etc. – tutti questi con un consapevole analisi approcciato vocalmente. Lo stile musicale (rinascimento, barocco, classicismo viennese o romantica) sarà scelto secondo le esigenze dei partecipanti. Uno degli scopi principali del corso è di introdurre i partecipanti nel corretto ed efficace uso della solmisazione relativa (o do mobile), un importantissimo mezzo della Concezione di Kodály, che – conservando gli stessi rapporti intervallari – sviluppa la sensibilità tonale.

Songs and singing games from 0 to 10 (ASZTALOS)


The seminar includes rhymes, songs, singing games and practices for holistic musical ability development of preschool and lower primary school students. The main aim of the lessons is to present the Kodály-concept based traditions and music teaching methodology with joyful activities and the creative integration of movements. The musical material – following the footsteps of Kodály – is collected from the popular songs and children songs of Italy, but participants will have the opportunity learn singing games from other countries too.

Canzoni canti- giocho da 0 a 10


Il seminario include filastrocche, canzoni, canti-gioco e pratiche per lo sviluppo delle abilità musicali olistiche degli studenti della scuola materna e della scuola primaria inferiore. Lo scopo principale delle lezioni è mostrare le tradizioni basate sul concetto Kodály e la metodologia dell'insegnamento musicale con attività gioiose e l'integrazione creativa dei movimenti. Il materiale musicale - seguendo le orme di Kodály - viene raccolto dalle canzoni popolari e dalle canzoni per bambini dell'Italia, ma i partecipanti impareranno anche a cantare i giochi di altri paesi.
