Developing an ear is the most important thing of all. Concentrate first of all on recognizing note and key. The myth of 'perfect pitch' is not innate but a question of practice . . .
Why Kodály? Hungarian composer, musician, and educator Zoltán Kodály believed that only the best is good enough for children. Joyful and meaningful music making occurs when children are immersed in a learning environment rich in the songs of their cultures, and focused on solid principles of child development.
When children are taught by highly skilled teachers, they become adept at singing, hearing, reading, writing, creating and interpreting music in such a way that they can be lifelong participators and contributors in music.
