Dalcroze Movement Class

If you hope your child might one day want to play an instrument, or if you’d love to give them a good grasp of and appreciation for music, Dalcroze Eurhythmics classes are a good way to draw out the rhythm already inside them!


Dalcroze Music and Movement Class
Ages 4-6

In this hands-on approach to music theory, children explore musical concepts such as meter, tempo, phrase, form and dynamics through rhythm games, creative movement, songs, stories, ear training, sight-singing and improvisation. Dalcroze is an ideal preparation for studying an instrument.
