The Kodály Concept can be summarized as the practice and believe in musicianship development through singing. Kodály educators believe that the learning process should start as early as possible through the learning and singing of songs. Good sequential learning process should operate with the main view that one proceeds from the simple to the complex by logical steps and that regular exposure to music is essential. Singing is fundamental to Kodály work because it is the finest means of music making, is in-built in mankind and is the best way of ensuring a connection with the INNER HEARING, that most essential aspect of any musician.
