Eurhythmics classes offer a high-energy and exciting approach to music education.

Eurhythmics Activity
Based on the work of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, this unique method awakens innate musicality while developing a spontaneous and joyous physical response to music through movement, ear training, and improvisation. Children become independent learners through self-discovery and use of all the senses. Students actively participate in singing, games, dramatization, and movement activities as they explore elements of music such as melody, rhythm, meter, dynamics, and phrasing. Minimum enrollment: 4 students.

Classes are suitable for beginning students as well as young children already involved in instrumental instruction. Activity sheets to complete with parents at home reinforce the ideas learned each week. The curriculum is created by Dr. Jeremy Dittus from Dalcroze™ School of the Rockies™.  

Ages: 4 - 5 years old
