We are thrilled to hear that two Victorian’s, Elizabeth O’Leary and Jenny Ferris have been awarded the Deanna Hoermann Scholarship by Kodály Australia. We extend our congratulations to Elizabeth and Jenny!

The Deanna Hoermann Scholarship honours the legacy of Dr Deanna Hoermann and her significant contribution to the Australian Kodály movement. The principal purpose of the Deanna Hoermann Scholarship is to support members studying Kodály-inspired practice and research abroad and returning to contribute to the continued growth of the Kodály Australia community.
