Dalcroze Eurhythmics
(2.7–5 Years)

The Dalcroze approach integrates the ear, mind, and body through movement, singing, instrument playing and improvisation. Children actively engage in music-making experiences and internalize beat and meter through walking, jogging and galloping. As the year proceeds, students are able to show what they hear in music and describe their rhythmic movement. When singing, children use their hands and arms to reveal the shape of a melody or phrase. Music notation is introduced when developmentally appropriate. The curriculum is shaped to the needs, interests, and skills of each individual class. This is a dynamic approach, grounded in kinesthetic experiences – a joyful way to learn, ideal for students of all ages.

Chorus
(4 & 5 Years)

Children love to sing and joyously explore the capabilities of their voices. In chorus classes for 4-and 5-year-olds, we celebrate song through singing, movement, instrument playing, and storytelling. These activities naturally lead to the introduction of rhythmic and melodic notation, developing each child’s musicianship in a supportive, social environment. All classes feature a pianist who improvises accompaniment of varying styles, creating a collaborative musical environment.
