Dalcroze Eurhythmics is an approach to musical learning which integrates the ear, mind, and body
through movement, singing, and improvisation. Children actively engage in musicmaking and internalize
elements of rhythm and eartraining through meaningful movement.

Dalcroze Eurhythmics prepares the body as an instrument, developing coordination, attention, flexibility, focus, vocal and rhythmic precision. It increases the student’s capacity for cooperative learning, and it prepares a deep and solid base for instrumental and vocal studies. Each class includes eurhythmics
movement, eartraining, improvisation, and music notation.
