As a result of several years of dedicated work to further develop the academic programmes at the Kodály Institute, we offer a two-year MA study course in Kodály Music Pedagogy that replaces the one-year programme established in 2007. This new study programme that started in 2017 contains 120 graduate credits.


The extended programme was designed in order to provide new opportunities for our students by offering regular teaching practice in the Institute’s partner schools and a wide range of specialisations including Early Childhood Music Education, the Kokas Pedagogy, Colourstrings Methods and Choral Music Education. Students enrolled in this programme will greatly benefit from the opportunities created for a more in-depth development of musicianship, more comprehensive training in teaching methods based on the Kodály Concept including methodology of teaching solfege and music theory at secondary and tertiary level, and naturally much more time available for the completion of research projects.
