Kodály Music Education are working in conjunction with Project Prima Volta and the Cuskelly College of Music to run these courses in New Zealand.
For those of you who are looking at completing Primary 2, Primary 3 and Secondary 2 courses (for credit or for audit) the dates are as follows:
- Friday 11 September and Saturday 12 September (Part 1 – to be held in Christchurch)
- followed by 2-10 October (Part 2 – to be held in Hawkes Bay).
We are implementing a new course structure in 2020 which Dr James Cuskelly and I believe will be a very successful model for New Zealand moving forward. In Part 1 (2 days) you will come together, go through all of the cultural materials repertoire, be presented with the conducting materials, choir materials and begin musicianship. You will also make a start on the first lesson plans so that you are ready to begin practicum early in Part 2 of the course. This will give you a head start for preparing materials (e.g. sing and plays, ensembles, conducting etc) prior to the October course. The October course will have four teaching days then one day off followed by another four teaching days – a total of nine days.
If you are enrolling for Primary 3 for credit (not audit), please remember that you will need to have your song file completed and ready for assessment from 2 October. More information to come in 2020.
I am very excited that the Primary 3 course will be offered for the first in New Zealand! Thank you very much to those eligible participants who have been waiting a number of years for this to happen.
We will also be running a Primary 1 course in 2020 so if you have colleagues who you are keen to encourage, the dates for that course are below. There are two locations for Part 1 for those interested in Primary 1.
- Sunday 13 / Monday 14 September Christchurch. This two-day course will be offered as taster-days for those keen to find out more. Those who are interested in continuing on to complete an accredited course would then also attend the 2-10 October course in Hawkes Bay.
- Saturday 6 June and Sunday 7 June – Auckland. This two-day course will be offered as taster-days for those keen to find out more. Those who are interested in continuing on to complete an accredited course would then also attend the 2-10 October course in Hawkes Bay.
