Dalcroze Education

With certified Dalcroze Instructor, Katie Couch.

Dalcroze Education is a unique and powerful foundation in music for individuals of all ages and levels of musicianship. In this method, theory always follows practice; musical concepts are felt intuitively in the body in multifaceted ways before the process of cognitive analysis begins. Musical concepts are explored through social, interactive, and experiential methods that invite the students to trust their ideas, develop their intuition, and create a meaningful musical vocabulary.

Engaging activities reinforce concepts such as understanding written rhythm, music and movement, developing a singing voice, using props in creative ways, learning about spatial awareness, working with others, and much more. After each class, students take home song literature and written work to complete with parents.
