Announcing our first Key Presenter – Dr Árpád Tóth
Dr Árpád Tóth is an internationally renowned Kodály teacher from the young generation. He teaches on a regular basis on four continents, in dozens of countries (Germany, Slovakia, Romania, Austria, England, Scotland, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Ireland, the USA, Mexico, China, Malaysia, South Korea, the Philippines, China, Australia etc.) in different universities and summer schools.
Árpád is fortunate to have relevant regular teaching practice on every level: from five year-olds to senior choirs, from non-professionals to academics.
