Dr Márta Minier, an active member of the Music Media Drama Research Group, is involved as a consultant co-organiser and educator in a Welsh-Hungarian Music Day organised in memory of eminent Hungarian composer and ethnomusicologist Zoltán Kodály (6 May 2017, Canton Uniting Church, Cardiff). In 2017 Hungarians commemorate the 50th anniversary of Kodaly’s death, who pioneered a music education system – the famous Kodály Method – that revolutionised the teaching of music to children well beyond his native Hungary. Kodály, who is equally reputed as a composer, a folk song collector and a pedagogue, is a Hungarian cultural export much appreciated in Wales. Testimony to this is the Kodaly Violin School based in Carmarthenshire, who are co-organisers of this bilingual event. Dr Minier’s expertise in Hungarian studies and in education is pivotal to the event.
