The Kodály Society of Ireland (KSI), in association with DCU St. Patrick's Campus, and with the generous support of the Hungarian Embassy, Dublin and the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, is delighted to announce a very exciting workshop weekend

We will welcome a highly experienced faculty, of well-renowned Hungarian masterteachers. They will teach, under two streams.

This weekend pedagogy course is suitable for:
· Primary teachers
· Post-primary music teachers
· Early years teachers
· Higher education music lecturers

Stream 2, Vocal Masterclasses:
Dr. Renata Darázs (soprano) & Balázs Székely (Piano)

The Vocal Masterclasses cater for advanced vocal students and
professional singers. Please send a current CV to [email protected] outlining:
i) your vocal experience to date and

All participants will take part in core activities of Common Singing and Solfége, in addition to taking specialised classes according to their chosen stream.

This will be a weekend packed with Active Music Making through singing, musicianship classes and pedagogy workshops, taught by incredibly inspiring teachers, who epitomise the skills of Kodály's teaching concept! It is an event that is not to be missed!
