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).

4-day course: 8 – 11 January, 9am - 5pm
6-day course: 8 – 14 January, 9am - 5pm (No classes on 12 January)
Examinations: 15 January, upon application (see below). Exam schedule TBA

The 4 and 6-day workshops are for those new to Dalcroze and those with prior experience. This is a great opportunity to refresh your knowledge or gain an introduction to Dalcroze. Core subject classes are streamed.

Perth Dalcroze Workshops 2019


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.
