Get to know the Kodaly Method @ Voices – A Festival of Song

The festival ‘Voices’ at Singapore’s Esplanade invites everyone to connect with one another through shared melodies and harmonies of songs that bring us together. It is through the coming together of music and words that we create song, a beautiful relationship between different elements. Similarly, when we all join our voices in song, we share an almost magical connection with our fellow singers around us. Experience this special bond at Voices.

 

”Teaching music and singing at school in such way that it is not a torture but a joy for the pupil; instill a finer music in him, a thirst which will last for a lifetime.” Zoltan Kodaly

Hungarian composer and music educator Zoltan Kodaly was one of the world’s foremost thinkers and leaders in music education. His philosophy and music methodology have significantly influenced public and private education in countries such as Japan, Korea, the UK and the US. In fact, you might have unknowingly experienced some of these fantastic ideas that were borrowed and successfully utilised in public schools as well as some of the largest commercial music schools in Singapore!
