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! Classes are small group (6 participants) and this session will run 5 weeks (June 19-July 17). Classes are held at Covenant Presbyterian Church (located at Mineral Point and Segoe). What happens in a Dalcroze Class? 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. Each class incorporates singing, playing, improvisation, instruments, games, and listening activities, as well as exposure to multicultural and other kinds of music. Students learn to concentrate better, strengthen language skills and motor skills, understand melody and harmony, and gain the confidence to try new things. What is Dalcroze? The Dalcroze Method was developed in the early 20th century by the Swiss composer, musician and educator Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, who believed that rhythm is a vital element of the teaching of music. Known as "music training through movement," Dalcroze uses the body to develop a strong musical foundation and natural feel for music.
