About this exposition

Name: Tim Sebastiaan Tomassen Main Subject: Master of Music Education according to the Kodály Concept Research Supervisors: Suzanne Konings, Jasper Grijpinkh: Title of Research: Relative Solmisation as a Tool for Teaching and Learning in Choral Education Research Question: How can Relative Solmisation be used as a Tool for Teaching and Learning in Choral Education? Summary of Results: In the Netherlands National Children’s Choir children from all over the Netherlands with different backgrounds, sing on a high level and perform on stage with professional orchestras and ensembles. The tool of relative solmisation is used in studying the repertoire they will sing in concerts. In this paper I will look into the way this tool is being used and how this relates to the development of broader musicianship skills of the choir singers. I will analyse the initial stage of musical literacy as presented in three different Kodály method inspired books. To be able to analyse the teaching and learning process in both the literature and my own teaching practice for the Netherlands National Children’s Choir of Vocaal Talent Nederland I will use the Sound – Name - Symbol diagram. In this practice based case study I hope to show which steps are involved in the process of learning to sight-read music as a young choir singer. Biography: Tim Tomassen is a music teacher who teaches at De Haagsche School Vereniging International Department, The Hague. After his Bachelor in Music Education at Codarts, Conservatory of Rotterdam he studied the Master of Music Education according to the Kodály Concept at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague. Since 2016 he is working as a solfege and theory teacher at the Netherlands National Children’s Choir and the School of Young Talent at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague.
