Kodály Method Workshop 

organized by 

the Office of the Hungarian Cultural Counsellor of Balassi Institute in Cairo

and the 

Faculty of Music Education of Helwan University 


The Office of the Hungarian Cultural Counsellor of Balassi Institute in Cairo in collaboration with Faculty of Music Education of Helwan University is going to organize the first Kodály Method Workshop. The event will take place at the Faculty of Music Education of Helwan University (27 Ismail Mohamed, Zamalek, Cairo) between 25-28 October 2015. Within the framework of the project, the students of the faculty will have the opportunity to learn a new music teaching method, called the Kodály Method. The Method, also referred to as the Kodály Concept, is an approach to music education developed in Hungary during the mid-twentieth century by Zoltán Kodály. 

The Kodály Method uses a child-developmental approach to sequence, introducing skills according to the capabilities of the child. Children are first introduced to musical concepts through experiences such as listening, singing, or movement. It is only after the child becomes familiar with a concept that he or she learns how to notate it. Concepts are constantly reviewed and reinforced through games, movement, songs, and exercises. 

The 2-day workshop will be delivered by Mrs. Gabriella Boda-Rechner, prizewinner of the Pro Cultura Hungarica in 2011. Mrs. Boda has developed her teaching and training techniques travelling all over the world: she taught many students from China, India and Morocco how to use the Kodály Method in the music education. 

The workshop to be held in Egypt is based on songs of the Egyptian folklore which will form the basis of the closing concert.
