International Katalin Forrai Award

The International Kodály Society is now accepting nominations for the 3rd annual Katalin Forrai Award. Kati was one of the few whom Zoltán Kodály chose to help develop a philosophy and curriculum for music in early childhood. Kati travelled the world teaching the importance and the curriculum of music in early childhood. For several summers, together with Donna Wood, she also taught the RCM summer course, Music in Early Childhood.  

 The purpose of the Award is to commemorate the worldwide contribution to the music education of young children made by Katalin Forrai during her lifetime, and to encourage, inspire and reward teachers who are contributing to her legacy today.  If you would like to nominate someone, please find the criteria here.
