The Kokas concept emphasizes and combines listening to master works with the various forms of responding to it in a natural and physical way. Immediate responses are required, so intense focus in listening is needed in order to manifest every minute change in the music through movement. The aim is not only to develop the listening perception and music appreciation of the participants, but more importantly to explore, interpret and express of one’s inner world by using various artistic languages and codes.
The Colourstrings philosophy is based on Zoltan Kodály´s thoughts about music education Colourstrings is a Kodály based, child centered approach to music education that has been in existence since the early 1970’s. Its originators, the Hungarian brothers Geza and Csaba Szilvay, revolutionized music education in Finland to such an extent that Colourstrings has become an integral part of the state music school system there.
Colourstrings method has been specifically designed for children and aims to teach them to play the instrument by means of children’s songs. The teaching takes advantage of the desire of play-school children to play games. The order in which musical rudiments are presented is the natural one of starting with what is easy and simple and proceeding to what is more complicated and more difficult.
