Middle School Dalcroze Eurhythmics

from Cleveland Institute of Music

Program image

Dalcroze Eurhythmics is a music education method in which students learn
about and develop musical skill through movement. The body is used as a
musical instrument in itself: clapping, running, swinging arms,
vocalization, etc., to explore how movement affects music and vice
versa. The class is full of movement, since memories based on physical
experiences are comparatively more vivid in our minds than ones
generated through aural or visual learning. For younger children and
musical beginners, Dalcroze is used to explore all the aspects of music,
whereas with more experienced music students, rhythm becomes a sort of
focal point in Dalcroze training.
