The title of the book, After Kodály has a dual meaning: it refers partly to the time that has passed away since Kodály's life-work was closed, and partly to the Kodályian roots of the personal thoughts of the author. This book is not a study on the fundamental methodology of teaching music, nor is it a step-by-step guide to the didactics of musicianship training. Rather, it summarises a wide scope of musical and philosophical foundations of the Kodály Concept of music education in a personal way. It reflects on an unusual aspect of music teaching: instead of reviewing widely-known and accepted didactic and methodological tools and patterns, or basic pedagogical points, the author approaches the topic from a clearly musical aspect. In his view the person who teaches music should firstly be a musician not a virtuoso of 'methodological tricks'. He gives fundamental ideas to teachers to train themselves first before training their pupils.
