Kodaly weekend 21-11 (41 of 295)
Teacher Training Course Muziek als Vak in 2022-2023


The Muziek als Vak course will again be offered the coming academic year – taking place on 8 Saturdays (1 every month) and study weekends in November and April. The course will take place in the new building of the Royal Conservatoire: Amare!


"At Muziek als Vak, they offer you different work forms and ideas through which you can approach at a song or a piece of music. The possibilities to vary are endless! This, together with learning rhythm language and relative solmisation, inspired me a lot! It further shaped my thinking about teaching music and opened a whole new musical world for me! "

- Judith van Vliet, participant Muziek als Vak 2019-2020


Muziek als Vak is both a practical and theoretical course about music education according to Kodály’s educational concept and philosophy. This course is for anyone who may have an interest in music-education. In particular, the following groups of people may benefit:

School class teachers with an interest in teaching music
Musicians with an interest in education
Music teachers who are looking to further their training

The following classes will be on offer and each class will be designed to meet the participants’ needs:

Methodology: learn about how to teach music to students using appropriate
Techniques: get to know about some of the main philosophies in music education with a special emphasis on the Kodály approach.
Repertoire: discover a wide range of songs, games and activities, which are appropriate for your class.
Musicianship: improve your own musical skills in a way that will help you to be a better teacher.
Singing: learn how to use your voice well, how to sing in a choir and how to sing with children.

NEW! Muziek als Vak 2

In September 2022 we will start with a second level group for Muziek als Vak. This course (Muziek als Vak 2) will continue from the level achieved in the first year Muziek als Vak. Besides being a great stand-alone course, we hope that with this extra possible year, Muziek als Vak (either with one, or with two years) can be the right stepping stone towards the Master of Music According to the Kodály Concept for those who want to even further discover the Kodály approach.
