About the event

Join Cathy Horbas (Winnipeg) and David Stark (Winnipeg) as they utilize Kodály methodology to support students in singing again. They will demonstrate singing techniques and strategies from various classrooms. Walk through the process of scaffolding musical literacy as the students learn a complete new choral piece. 

Registration for this FREE workshop is open to music educators in Manitoba and across Canada. Due to privacy regulations involving children under the age of 18, we are unable to record the workshop for viewing afterwards. We hope participants will make every effort to attend!
