American Kodály Institute – Maryland

The American Kodály Institute, founded in 2000 by Amy Branum Huggins and Betty Bertaux, is a teacher training organization that offers a three-summer program for music educators, leading to Kodály certification. AKI was formed in response to requests from music educators in Maryland and surrounding states for a Kodály certification program located in a geographic area convenient to them, and to provide a pool of music educators to fill the growing demand for Kodály trained master teachers. AKI’s highly successful program attracts graduate students from across the United States and will soon open its doors to international students. Originally established as a division of the Children’s Chorus of Maryland, AKI is now an independent non-profit corporation.
