Silver Lake College offers a compact, two-week Kodály Summer Graduate Music Program.

Music educators can earn a Master of Music in Music Education with a Kodály emphasis in just four summers. While earning a master’s degree, they also earn an Organization of American Kodály Educators-endorsed Kodály certification.

Graduate students also have the option of earning a Kodály certification in just three summers.

Silver Lake College was the first to offer a master’s degree in Kodály education and has since enjoyed a coveted reputation in excellence. In addition to the well-qualified faculty members who specialize in Kodály and other areas of music, Silver Lake College invites guest professors of extremely high caliber to instruct the program’s course offerings. Many of the professors are themselves graduates of the Silver Lake College program.

Graduate students are taught the latest research, theory and methods in music education as they fine-tune their professional skills and personal musicianship.

Our music graduates and Kodály certificate holders serve as teachers and music supervisors in preschool through college music training programs in more than 20 states as well as internationally. 

Silver Lake College’s picturesque campus offers students a chance to focus on their studies in a tranquil rural setting. They also can explore the historic city of Manitowoc, which is located on the shores of Lake Michigan and features a fully restored World War II submarine.
