About this Grantee
Mrs. Smith attends an intensive Kodaly music course at California State University, Long Beach, to enhance her music instruction. The Kodaly method involves vocally-based music instruction that complements young children's natural means of musical expression. Children are taught musical concepts through their own singing games. To increase students’ music and performance skills, Mrs. Smith studies melodies, advanced conducting, music and movement, folk song analysis, and vocal pedagogy.
