Since the mid-twentieth century, Zoltán Kodály's child-developmental philosophy for teaching music has had significant positive impact on music education around the world, and is now at the core of music teaching in the United States and other English speaking countries. The Kodály Today handbook series is the first comprehensive system to update and apply the Kodály concepts to teaching music in elementary school classrooms. Kodály in the First Grade Classroom provides teachers with a step-by-step road map for developing children's performance, creative movement, and literacy skills in an organic and thoughtful manner. Through six years of field-testing with music kindergarten teachers in the United States, Great Britain, and Hungary (the home country of Zoltán Kodály), authors Micheál Houlahan and Philip Tacka have developed a methodology specifically for 21st century classrooms. Houlahan and Tacka use the latest research findings in cognition and perception to create a system not only appropriate for the developmental stages of first grade students but also one which integrates vertically between elementary music classes. The methods outlined in this volume encourage greater musical ability and creativity in children by teaching them to sing, move, play instruments, and develop music literacy skills. In addition, Kodály in the First Grade Classroom promotes critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration skills. Although the book uses the Kodály philosophy, its methodology has also been tested by teachers certified in Orff and Dalcroze, and has proven an essential guide for teachers no matter what their personal philosophy and specific training might be. Numerous children's songs are incorporated into Kodály in the First Grade Classroom, as well as over 35 detailed lesson plans that demonstrate how music and literacy curriculum goals are transformed into tangible musical objectives. Scholarly yet practical and accessible, this volume is sure to be an essential guide for kindergarten and early childhood music teachers everywhere.

In this new edition of their groundbreaking Kodály Today, Mícheál Houlahan and Philip Tacka offer an expertly-researched, thorough, and -- most importantly -- practical approach to transforming curriculum goals into tangible, achievable musical objectives and effective lesson plans. Their model -- grounded in the latest research in music perception and cognition -- outlines the concrete practices behind constructing effective teaching portfolios, selecting engaging music repertoire for the classroom, and teaching musicianship skills successfully to elementary students of all degrees of proficiency. Addressing the most important questions in creating and teaching Kodály-based programs, Houlahan and Tacka write through a practical lens, presenting a clear picture of how the teaching and learning processes go hand-in-hand. Their innovative approach was designed through a close, six-year collaboration between music instructors and researchers, and offers teachers an easily-followed, step-by-step roadmap for developing students' musical understanding and metacognition skills. A comprehensive resource in the realm of elementary music education, this book is a valuable reference for all in-service music educators, music supervisors, and students and instructors in music education.

Sind alle Kinder musikalisch? Was ist Musik? Was ist angeboren? Wie können Kinder am besten gefördert werden? Der Begriff Musik löst oft Missverständnisse aus. Vielfach werden unklare oder hohe Ansprüche damit verbunden. Dieses Buch zeigt auf, was kleine Kinder von Natur aus an Musikalität mitbringen und in welcher Weise die musikalischen Grundkompetenzen bei allen Menschen vorhanden sind: Bei der Geburt ist der Säugling bestens vorbereitet, um sich an die Musik und die Sprache seiner Umgebung anzupassen. Er kann hören und die Stimme verwenden und nutzt vor allem die musikalischen Eigenschaften, um innerhalb von zwei bis drei Jahren singen und sprechen zu lernen. Dazu benötigt das Kind eine anregende Umgebung. Welche Art von Musikverständnis ist förderlich für ein Kind? Im Unterschied zur Musiktheorie, definiert dieses Werk den Begriff „Musik“ ausgehend von elementaren Erfahrungen und Funktionen. Die Leserin und der Leser finden hier wertvolle Hinweise, nach welchen Prinzipien die musikalischen Grundeigenschaften geordnet werden können und warum unsere kulturellen Regeln nicht immer gelten. Die Ausführungen zu den Funktionen von Musik zeigen auf, in welcher Weise Musik seit jeher ein wichtiges kulturelles Mittel ist, um das Zusammenleben der Menschen zu gestalten. Diese praxisorientierte Darstellung bietet mit anschaulichen Illustrationen und Fallbeispielen einen aktuellen und leicht verständlichen Überblick über diese Thematik.
