Participants will be immersed in the principal subjects of the Dalcroze approach: eurhythmics, solfège, and piano improvisation. In eurhythmics, participants work through kinesthetic musical experiences in movement to arrive at intellectual understanding about music. Dalcroze solfège, which differs from “traditional” solfège, emphasizes aural flexibility within the tonal language. Piano improvisation provides a venue for spontaneous musical expression, fusing the prior two subjects. Additional topics will include practical pedagogical discussions and playing for eurhythmics classes.

2 - 4 semester credits available.



Tuition fees are additional if enrolled for university credits. In-state tuition is available at $617 per credit.
