Dalcroze Australia events
The Dalcroze approach uses movement to provide a complete musicianship training. Its emphasis on expression and creativity is balanced by its ability to develop a deep understanding of musical language and skills. It is a creative, rigorous and holistic approach to the study of music that is applicable to the teaching of young children right through to the development of professional performers. The Sydney Dalcroze Days are led by Dalcroze Australia's Director of Studies Dr Sandra Nash.
2-day or 4-day registration options are available. Days 1 & 2 will focus on Music and Movement for Early Childhood teachers. Days 3 & 4 will focus on Dalcroze Enrichment for those who already have some experience and are seeking to enrich their practice in Rhythmic movement, Aural training and Improvisation.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS
After an excellent response to last year’s Perth Dalcroze Workshops, Dalcroze Australia is pleased to welcome back special guest teacher Jerison Harper Lee (Singapore) to teach these highly practical, targeted workshops on 5 October. As each workshop will present new material, participants may enrol in just one, or both workshops.
Jerison Harper Lee holds the Master of Arts in Dalcroze Pedagogy from the Institut Jaques-Dalcroze, Geneva. Jerison’s workshops will explore creative, kinaesthetic ways of teaching and learning. In each hands-on workshop, participants will experience practical applications of the Dalcroze approach in their area of speciality: classroom music, or instrumental teaching. Activities will be differentiated for easy adaptation into a primary or secondary setting. Expect to move, sing, play, create and find efficient, engaging tools through which develop the musicianship skills of your students! These workshops are ideal as a first taste of the Dalcroze approach, or for those with prior Dalcroze experience who are looking for more games and activities for their teaching.

ABOUT THE SUMMER SCHOOL
The Summer School is aimed at adult music professionals, both teachers and performers. It provides an opportunity for music educators and performers to enrich their practice by developing their personal musicianship skills and discovering new tools for teaching using movement, singing and improvisation.
The School offers an introduction to the approach for those new to Dalcroze, and separate streams for participants who have prior Dalcroze experience. Each day includes sessions in Movement, Rhythmics, Ear and Voice, and Improvisation. Afternoon sessions will address the application of Dalcroze to a variety of specific contexts.
Please come dressed in movement-appropriate clothing, be prepared to move in bare feet, and bring your instrument. A printed record of attendance will be available and light morning tea refreshments provided. Participants should provide their own lunch.
In 2020 we are pleased to welcome to Australia international guest teachers Dr Louise Mathieu (Canada) and Jerison Harper Lee (Singapore), who will teach alongside local teachers Dr Joan Pope (Perth), Dr Sandra Nash (Sydney), Katherine Smith (Perth) and Virginia Norris (Perth).
