I would just like to say how much I have enjoyed the adult Dalcroze sessions that Elizabeth Watkin has held for us parents at the Suzuki Residential Piano Workshop at the Princess Helena College in Hertfordshire this week.
On many Suzuki workshops I have watched my children’s Dalcroze session, and have admired the combination of music, listening and movement. Doing two sessions myself, I was surprised to see how tricky it can be to co-ordinate listening and limbs! Combining singing and movement was an eye (and ear) opener – I could hear things more clearly, and sing my own voice more steadily, when it was combined with movement. The co-ordination of time and space (ball rolling) was equally interesting.
So much subtlety to detect with increased awareness!
Thank you Elizabeth!
