British Kodály Academy

The British Kodály Academy is a registered charity working to promote the advancement of British music education, following the teachings of the composer and educator, Zoltán Kodály.

Kodály training develops musicianship through singing. The student engages in the most direct of musical responses without the technical demands of an instrument. This practical approach combined with a clear progression from the simple to the complex facilitates the development of excellent musicianship skills such as sight singing and keen pitch discrimination as well as high levels of musical literacy. Kodály training is suitable for all ages and stages and can be applied to all kinds of music from classical to world music and jazz.

The BKA runs courses for all adults. There are residential courses, day courses and fully accredited certification courses. We welcome specialist and non-specialist music teachers in all settings, whether working with children or adults, including Early Years, instrumental teachers and choir directors. We also welcome anyone wanting to develop their own singing, musicianship and, where applicable, conducting skills. All courses offer an opportunity to view and purchase a wide range of books and resources to support learning and teaching at all stages.

The BKA is a not-for-profit organisation which relies mainly on the subscriptions of its members. Run by a dedicated team of trustees and officers, the BKA is proud of its distinguished patrons and its affiliation to the International Kodály Society (IKS) and welcomes links with other like-minded people and organisations sympathetic to its aims.

Membership is open to all.

The British Kodály Academy is a Registered Charity. Membership is open to anyone in sympathy with the aims of the Academy and interested in learning about Kodály’s work, teaching philosophy and music.

Join the British Kodály Academy and become part of this growing movement in the United Kingdom, working to promote the learning and practice of Kodály’s principles.
