Dalcroze Workshop

​August 3 - 7, 2020

Incorporating eurhythmics, solfege and improvisational activities, Dalcroze education is a unique and powerful way of knowing music through the body. The Dalcroze approach explores musical concepts through social and interactive methods that invite students to trust their ideas and develop their own intuitions.
