Kodaly

KMEIA:
Kodaly Music Education Institute of Australia
by Darren Wicks

KMEIA is a community of music educators who are inspired by the educational and aesthetic philosophies of the Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodaly. Our members seek to adapt his ideas to create programs of excellence for Australian children. As a professional association, KMEIA upholds the highest standards of music education through supporting and resourcing Australian music teachers.

Sequential Music Instruction

Kodály believed that musical instruction should reflect the way that children learn naturally. Just as one learns to speak first and then read and write later, so the sound should be taught first before the symbols. The developed inner ear will then be able to recall the sounds when they are presented later as symbols (Choksy, 1999a). He also advocated that musical skills should be carefully sequenced into patterns that reflect an understanding of child development. Great care is taken to lead the child from the known to the unknown and from direct experience to abstract concepts and symbols.

Orff - Creative Music and Movement

ANCOS:
Australian National Council of Orff Schulwerk
by Christoph Maubach

The Orff approach to music education, or Orff Schulwerk (meaning music for schools or groups of children), was developed by the German composer Carl Orff (1895 - 1982) and his collaborator, Gunild Keetman (1904 - 1991)

SINGING SPEECH MOVEMENT FOLK DANCE PLAYING

Orff Schulwerk fosters a wholistic approach to music eduation. It integrates singing, speech, movement, fold dance, tuned and non-tuned percussion instruments to develop creative music making.

Improvisation is a fundamental part of the process. The principles of creating, making and presenting are developed creatively, using imitation, echo, ostinato and canon. It is an approach to which all may contribute and experience success. The social value of group music making is reinforced in this approach, as is the importance of individual creative contributions.
