Event description
Kodály Ireland Solfège class series at levels 1, 2, 3 and 4.

About this Event

Due to expressed interest from our members and followers, we are delighted to present this wonderful 9-week online Solfège course. This course is a continuation of our Autumn solfege class series but is open to new and continuing participants.

The classes will be delivered by our fabulous tutors Clare Dixon (Levels 1&2) and Anne Ralph (Levels 3&4), both highly successful alumni of the Kodály Institute.

Course Details

The aim of this course is to develop each participant's sense of musicianship and to develop musicianship skills such as ear training and the ability to sight-read, all while developing a solid understanding of music theory. Though we normally provide in-person classes, some of the more commonly asked questions about our classes remain very relevant in the online context and are answered on our website:

Level descriptors**

Level 1: Ultimate beginner class. The perfect introduction for those who have little to no experience reading music, and using solfa!

Level 2: For those who have some experience with music reading and understanding. If you have previously taken introductory Solfège classes and want to develop your skills, this is the place for you. Some familiarity with relative solfa is an advantage here, but not necessary.

Level 3: For those who are comfortable with the use of relative solfa, and/or have a solid grounding with music theory. Perhaps you have previously taken Solfège Classes, or have had some formal training in music (either recently, or many moons ago!)

Level 4: For those who are very comfortable with the use of relative solfa and/or music theory, and those who have had formal training in music. This is a space to push your musical knowledge, skill, and coordination!

Please note that our application form will assist participants who are unsure of which level to take. Please email kodalyireland@gmail.com if further advice is needed.

**Classes will run subject to enrolment. Spaces are limited.
