Dalcroze Rhythmic-Solfége l
Dalcroze Rhythmic-Solfège I is for children ages 6 and older. This class builds on the concepts we have begun to explore in Eurhythmics, and the curriculum deeply prepares students for future or concurrent instrumental study, all through the spirit of play and discovery within the Dalcroze classroom!
All Rhythmic-Solfège students will complete weekly assignments on a metallophone (a small portable xylophone) to be purchased separately and in a workbook each week. Parents are expected to be present for the first 15 minutes of class each week to review homework from the previous week. This also provides time for learning how to practice with your child at home and for creating a foundation for a commitment to practicing and learning an instrument. A commitment from both parent and child to practice together at least 10 minutes each day, 5 days each week is expected.
This course is offered as an online class. The instructor has a special interest in finding innovative avenues for high quality, experience-based, interactive music education in any learning environment, including an online platform.
*Prerequisite: 1 year of Dalcroze Eurhythmics or approval from instructor.
Please note: The age listed for each class is the student’s age as of September 1.
This class is a 2-part sequence, with the subsequent class offered in Spring 2021.
