I’m spending the day writing an essay on Zoltán Kodály and Katalin Forrai as part of my Kodály Certificate in Early Childhood Music and this quote has struck home.
‘Music is everyone’s property. But how can we let it belong to everyone? We can, if a small child’s interest in music and his mood for singing a song are not ignored for years on end. We can if he learns his music, not as a foreign language, but as his musical mother tongue; if it is inside him and grows in him from the earliest possible stages of his life.’ Zoltán Kodály
