TAP 026: Kodály with Kathy Kuddes

The Anacrusic Podcast

Today I am beyond thrilled to have my great friend and mentor Kathy Kuddes on the podcast to talk all about her experience with Kodály. Our conversation goes beyond what you might expect from a stereotypical “Kodály” interview, and we talk about all things training programs, historical context, and the upcoming teacher’s tour to Hungary. Kathy’s thoughts on quality and authenticity still have me thinking critically about what I’m choosing to include in my classroom, after all, only the best is good enough.  Check out the Kodály teacher’s tour by clicking here. | Find out more about Kathy here.
