What is the Kodály Approach to Music?

The Kodály approach to teaching music supports the conviction that each person is innately musical and that music is “a spiritual food for which there was no other substitute.” This approach teaches the entire person through singing, movement, hand signals, and using the songs of the people (local songs) to move their hearts.

The Kodály method uses that unique tool of music to help each student touch those regions of the soul with “the deep experience of happiness in music.”
