Lucinda Geoghegan will introduce the principles of Kodály where all elements of music are taught through singing. Lucinda will cover singing activities suitable for Nursery to KS1, and KS2, taking into account the specific needs of the teachers and choir directors in our group. Participants need to be willing to ‘access their inner child’ for these two days and join in as a 7-year-old would. Although fairly complex musical structures will be introduced, (pulse, rhythm, metre, pitch, tuning, listening, emotion in the song, recognisable patterns), they are presented though practical music-making, in a manner that makes sense to a child.
Lucinda Geoghegan is Chair of the Education for the British Kodály Academy as well as Director on the board of the International Kodály Society. She is also Director of Education for National Youth Choir of Scotland. She is a guest lecturer on the summer and yearly courses at the Kodály Institute in Kecskemét, Hungary, and in addition has delivered workshops in Ireland, Germany, Holland, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, Turkey, Australia, Canada and the USA.
