Welcome to ROCKE: the Regional Organization of Colorado Kodály Educators! ROCKE is a regional chapter of the Organization of American Kodály Educators (OAKE). The mission of OAKE is to enrich the quality of life of the people of the USA through music education by promoting the philosophy of Zoltán Kodály.
ROCKE is dedicated to promoting music education at the highest level. In addition to providing inspiring and engaging workshops presented by nationally-recognized master teachers, ROCKE also provides Make-and-Take sessions at the annual CMEA Clinic/Conference each year and offers scholarship opportunities for teachers planning to attend summer certification courses at the Colorado Kodály Institute at Colorado State University. OAKE members who are affiliated with ROCKE are also welcome to borrow octavos from ROCKE's choral library.
