This course will review concepts from Kodály Level 1 (previous course not required), and students will further their musicianship skills. It will focus on continuing to develop the singing voice, incorporating solfège (so mi, la) and will introduce students to sing, read, write on the staff with beginning notes and rhythms (quarter note, eighth notes, and quarter rest). They will also learn musical terminology and utilize musical materials, classroom instruments, and body percussion with an array of songs and instrumental pieces in varying meters, tempos, and keys to continue the development of their musicianship skills. Come experience the joy of music making in Kodály class!
