What Is Dalcroze Education?

Dalcroze Education is a unique, exciting, and powerful way of knowing music through the body.  The Dalcroze approach explores musical concepts through social and interactive methods that invite students to trust their ideas and develop their own intuitions.  In a typical Dalcroze class, the instructor will combine the elements above using rhythm games, songs, gesture, and movement as the key teaching media so that the joy of music is experienced and understood.  As a precursor to or in tandem with private music lessons, Dalcroze Education will create a platform for accelerated and deep learning in all musicians.
