CANCELED: Carolina Kodály Institute

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: This event has been canceled for 2020. Due to the importance and benefit of the institute's hands-on learning process, and the necessity for social distancing during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the institute will not operate during summer 2020. We will return in July 2021. Please revisit this page for updates. —Christopher Nigrelli, Camp Director

Presented by Lenoir-Rhyne University in cooperation with the Kodály Educators of North Carolina, the Carolina Kodály Institute offers Levels I, II and III certification courses through intense two-week summer workshops. Lenoir-Rhyne University carries full endorsement by the Organization of American Kodály Educators (OAKE).

Instruction is based on multi-cultural folk songs and art music which includes singing, dancing, games, improvisation, composition, and classroom instruments. Participants will take away teaching strategies and materials which can be used in their own classrooms and choral ensembles. As this is an intense experience, participants may complete only one level per two-week session.
