The British Kodály Academy – with music in mind

About the BKA

The British Kodály Academy is a registered charity working for the improvement of music education in the UK. Founded originally as the British Kodály Society by Cecilia Vajda, it has been running training courses since 1982. The BKA currently runs an annual programme of courses and activities for people wanting to develop their own musical skills, or to teach music to others, using principles advocated by Zoltán Kodály. The BKA is the Affiliated National Institutional Member of the International Kodály Society and has a distinguished group of patrons from the world of music and music education. The BKA is run by an Executive Committee of Trustees. The BKA stocks a full range of books and teaching materials useful for those wishing to teach or learn the Kodály approach.


Our aims

The work of Zoltán Kodály and his pupils in Hungary resulted in a dynamic process of music education, which has deep relevance for music training and school teaching in Britain today.
