    GPO Used for Teaching the Kodaly Method

    Steve Martin just sent this short exercise aimed at secondary music teachers in Australia, who use the Kodaly method in their teaching of music. Steve is using GPO and producing an education DVD using the Koladny Method. Here is a brief exercise:


    For those who have Sibelius, here is the Sibelius file: http://www.garritan.com/mp3/sm-Crescendo_gpo.sib

    The above WAV file was produced played directly from the Sibelius score from the Record function on the newest GPO Studio.

    The Kodaly method is a system of music education for children that includes singing, ear training, solfeggio, rhythmic movement, and improvisation. It was developed by Zoltan Kodaly and his teachers in Hungrary to achieve the goal of music literacy.

    Steve writes "It is really a mixture of teaching techniques from the Carl Orff schools, and Dalcroze, and Curwen, from whom we get the "tonic solfa" and handsigns for the sounds [doh, re, mi etc].... It is just a fantastic way to teach music to kids. They just love it. The DVD should be available soon.

    It is so rewarding to hear that GPO is being used to educate young people to learn about music.

    Kodaly is also the originator of my signature.. B-)
    "Music is a manifestation of the human spirit similar to a language. If we do not want such things to remain dead treasures, we must do our utmost to make the greatest number of people understand their secrets" -- Zoltan Kodaly
