Would you like to give your child the opportunity to learn musical skills in an active and creative environment?
Does your child enjoy moving and using their body?
Would you like your child to develop their imagination through music?
Learning musical fundamentals through experience is the basis of the Dalcroze method. These classes will involve children in feeling music through movement and singing.
The musical skills learned will stay with the children for ever, informing their listening and increasing their enjoyment of all types of music. Pupils who study an instrument (now or in the future) will be at a huge advantage in the following ways:
- Physical awareness and control
- Listening Skills
- Understanding of rhythm and metre
- Awareness of pitch
- Ability to be expressive
Dalcroze-based training is often described as "an education through music" - this acknowledges the broader benefits gained through individual, pair, and group working which include:
- Spatial awareness
- Awareness of others
- Problem solving
- Development of creativity
- Critical skills
- Language and literacy
