About this event

Tham Pei Wen graduated from the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music (Hungary) with a Masters of Arts degree in Kodaly Music Pedagogy, with a culminating thesis on the adaptation of the Kodaly Approach for children with special needs, with a focus on children with autism. She holds a Masters in Education (gifted education) from the National Institute of Education (Singapore), and was a geography teacher in the MOE classroom for 7 years before following her passion towards the world of music.

Pei Wen’s heart for children with special needs led her to start the junior and youth choir at Pathlight school (for children with autism) in 2012, and as a Music Curriculum specialist, she started the Kodaly Based Signature music program in Pathlight (primary) school in 2018.

Besides Pathlight school, Pei Wen started the Starlight Programme at Voices of Singapore with a colleague, where she runs a weekly online Music Making Program, catering to children with special needs.

In her talk, Pei Wen will share about her work with children with autism in Singapore - how a Kodaly based music programme is being developed in a school especially catered for children with autism, some strategies (both general and Kodaly based) used in the classroom, and how we can advocate for music to be accessible to this group of children.

Organiser Kodály Ireland

Organiser of KI Webinar: Adapting the Kodály Approach for Children with Autism

Kodály Ireland is an educational support group specialising in professional development for music teachers and musicians. Presented by leading Irish and Hungarian music educators, our training courses provide opportunities for teachers, singers, instrumentalists and conductors to become familiar with the renowned concept of music education formulated by the Hungarian composer and educator Zoltán Kodály, a concept which can be summed up very simply as active, experience-based learning and musical development through singing.
