As an Australian musician and educator I consider it a privilege to have been given the opportunity to study choral conducting and music pedagogy in Hungary at the International Kodály Institute for two academic years (2002-04). What began simply as reflective diary entries during this time eventually evolved into a Master of Music Studies thesis entitled Australians at the Kodály Institute: Reflections on the Journey held at the ARMUS library, School of Music, University of Queensland. This paper is based on an excerpt of the thesis.
