Authors Micheal Houlahan and Philip Tacka use the latest research findings in cognition and perception to create a system not only appropriate for the developmental stages of second-grade students but also one which integrates vertically between elementary music classes. The methods outlined in this volume encourage greater musical ability and creativity in children by teaching them to sing, move, play instruments, and develop music literacy skills. In addition, Kodály in the Fifth Grade Classroom promotes critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills.

Although the book uses the Kodály philosophy, its methodology has also been tested by teachers certified in Orff and Dalcroze and has proven an essential guide for teachers no matter what their personal philosophy and specific training might be.
