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. 

This workshop offers an introduction to Dalcroze Eurhythmics through classes in Rhythmics, Ear and Voice, Improvisation and Dalcroze Pedagogy. It is designed for music professionals, both teachers and performers, and offers an introduction to the Dalcroze approach. A second stream will be available for participants who have prior Dalcroze experience. Please come dressed in movement-appropriate clothing, be prepared to move in bare feet, and bring your instrument (if applicable). 

Light morning tea refreshments will be provided, please bring your own lunch. 

Come along to experience the Dalcroze approach for yourself at the beautiful venue of St Margaret’s in Ascot.
