Group piano classes are ideal for the absolute beginner with no prior experience. Students should have access to a piano or keyboard at home.
This year-long course will introduce the beginning concepts of music theory: notation, meter, scales, harmony, and basic musical forms through the incorporation of Dalcroze Eurhythmics, an innovative approach to deepening the understanding of musical concepts. Class activities include spatial exploration, vocal awareness, as well as extensive rhythmic training.
Dalcroze methods engage students in interactive dynamic learning experiences that can help them develop analytical listening skills and open them up to their own innate musicality. This series of progressive lessons will enable participants to experience Dalcroze methods directly and show how they may apply these methods in their own teaching. Each session will feature a 70-minute session exploration of Dalcroze Rhythmic Solfege and a twenty-minute Q&A session. Designed specifically for music educators regardless of their prior exposure to Dalcroze methods.
