Can I do an assessment at the end of the course?
Yes there is the option to do the course for assessment, but it is not compulsory. Please note however, these musicianship modules will be part of the new BKA Certificate course, so successful completion of the assessment would mean that you will already have one of the modules towards certification.

How do I get more information?
Any course questions should be raised before submitting the booking form – email Lucinda Geoghegan on education@kodaly.org.uk
For bookings once made, the Administrator is Margaret Oliver shop@kodaly.org.uk
