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.

Presented in collaboration with Dalcroze School of the Rockies DSR-LOGO-VECTORIZED

Eurhythmics
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.

Rhythmic Solfège I, II and III

The Dalcroze™ Rhythmic- Solfège™ sequence will provide students with all of the necessary building blocks to achieve success at their own instrument. This process-oriented program builds on the work begun in Eurhythmics, maintaining the Dalcrozian tenants of joy, discovery, and experiential eduction as its foundation, and begins to delve more deeply into musical subjects and literature. Assignments on a keyboard percussion instrument and homework will be a regular part of the curriculum, as well as a commitment from both parent and child to practice together at least 10 minutes each day, 5 days each week. This program is modeled after similar models in Western Europe, where the goal is to provide thorough, comprehensive musicianship and of the material.
