Dalcroze Eurhythmics is an exciting and joyful form of music education. Dalcroze classes offer a hands-on approach to music theory in which students explore musical concepts such as meter, tempo, phrase, form and dynamics through rhythm games, purposeful movement, songs, ear training, sight-singing and improvisation. The playful atmosphere in classes promotes coordination, balance, movement vocabulary and active listening as well as independent and cooperative learning.
Émile Jaques-Dalcroze was a Swiss pianist and educator and founded his pedagogical concepts in the early twentieth century, which makes Dalcroze Education one of the oldest music education methods in modern history!
Dalcroze Eurhythmics is for children ages 4 and older. This curriculum is designed in collaboration with the Dalcroze School of the Rockies and allows students to joyfully experience music from the inside out through purposeful movement, singing, and interactive musical games.
Open classes are schedules throughout the year to share with family and friends.
This class is a 2-part sequence, with the subsequent class offered in Spring 2020.
