The Kodály Summer Institute at UCM has been training public and parochial, K-8 music educators teaching in Missouri and surrounding states since 1997. Educators receive teacher training, under the direction of world- renown instructors in the Kodály approach to music education, where learning how to instill the love of music in every student and enabling every learner to become musically literate is paramount. Age- appropriate teaching methods and materials, the use of musical tools and activities that enhance the learner's ability to grasp concepts, and flexibility and creativity in the teaching/learning process will be used.
To teach a child an instrument without first giving him preparatory training and without developing singing, reading and dictating to the highest level along with the playing is to build upon sand. ~ Zoltan Kodály
