Dalcroze Eurhythmics is a joyful and fun introduction to music fundamentals that provides a solid foundation for beginning instrumental study.

Dalcroze Eurhythmics uses creative movement and singing games to teach children to respond to music with their bodies, increasing coordination, attention, spatial awareness, and focus. Classes include introductions to improvisation, conducting, and notation using a wide repertoire of songs, games, and activities.

It is not enough to teach children to interpret music with their fingers … the important thing is that the child should learn to feel music not only with his ear but with his whole being.

- Emile Jacques Dalcroze

The voice is every child’s first instrument. Grounded in the philosophy of composer Zoltán Kodály, this playful class uses traditional songs, chants, and singing games in a systematic way to teach children the basic building blocks of music: the ability to hear, to feel and reproduce rhythm and melody, to understand dynamics and tempo, to sing in tune, and to create music of their own. Younger children learn solfège; older children learn to read and write basic musical notation. Children may enroll for the first time in any session, but each session contains new repertoire, and continues to build upon material and concepts taught in the previous sessions.
