Kodaly Music Education: The Kodály concept was inspired by the philosophies of the Hungarian composer and educator, Zoltan Kodály (1882 – 1967). Throughout Kodály’s writings are the notions that a person cannot be complete without music and that music serves to develop a person on all levels – emotionally, spiritually and intellectually (Kodály, 1994). Kodály believed that every person has musical aptitude and that, ideally, a music education should begin as early as possible in a person's life - firstly at home and then later within the school curriculum. Kodály believed that singing should be the foundation of all music education.
