Perth Dalcroze Foundation Course 2017 - full year or single-term enrolment now available

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 Dalcroze approach has broad musical applications. Participants in the Perth Dalcroze Foundation Course may enrol to enrich their teaching practice in classroom, instrumental or ensemble settings, or to deepen their musicality in performance. Expect to move, sing, play and create; expect to discover new ways to develop as a musician; and expect to find efficient, engaging tools through which develop the musicianship of your students!

DATES
The course runs on Monday evenings, 7pm-9:30pm.
Term 1: 27 February, 13 March and 27 March
Term 2: 1 May, 15 May and 29 May
Term 3: 24 July, 7 August and 28 August

ABOUT THE COURSE
This course provides a first level of training for those interested in gaining an understanding of the Dalcroze approach. The course is highly practical, consisting of classes in rhythmic movement, aural training, improvisation and Dalcroze principles. The course is designed for music educators and performers interested in learning through physical engagement. The ability to sing and play a musical instrument/voice is essential. Basic piano skills are advantageous but not essential.

VENUE
All classes held at Quintilian School, 46 Quintilian Rd, Mount Claremont WA.

QUALIFICATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
Participants are encouraged to undertake the Foundation examinations and written work, on successful completion of which the Foundation Award of the DEIEB (Dalcroze Eurhythmics International Examination Board) will be granted.

For more information, please contact us.

Participants with the Foundation Award who wish to become qualified Dalcroze teachers can proceed with the Intermediate Award and beyond. If you have already passed some Foundation level exams or have prior Dalcroze experience, please contact us to discuss recognition of prior learning.
