Mary Ann Lowe/Helen Bryan Memorial Scholarships
The Southeast Chapter of Kodály Educators is offering the Mary Ann Lowe and Helen Bryan Memorial Scholarships to the Kodály Institute at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, June 10-28, 2013.
Mary Ann Lowe was a Kodály-trained teacher in the Chattanooga Public Schools elected to the Tennessee Music Education Hall of Fame. Helen Bryan founded the Chattanooga Education in the Musical Arts Association, a non-profit organization which enabled many music educators to be trained in the Kodály approach locally, at national Kodály training centers and in Hungary. Her pioneering work led to the establishment of the Kodály Institute at UTC.
Scholarships will be applied to the course fee. Recipients are responsible for the balance of the fee and the purchase of all necessary books and materials. The workshop fee (non-credit) is $475. Undergraduate credit is $1,104 (3 hours, in-state) and graduate credit is $1,443 (3 hours, instate). The registration deadline is June 3.
Applicants for the scholarships must submit a letter of application to Dr. Lee Harris, Music Department head and coordinator of the Kodály studies program, at the address below. The letter should address the applicant's current teaching position, experience with the Kodály approach, and commitment to incorporating the Kodály concept in the classroom. Applicants for Level II or III scholarships must have completed the appropriate prerequisite courses at an approved Kodály training institution and should state so in the letter.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of need, appropriate qualifications and evidence of commitment to Kodály-based music education.
