Dalcroze Eurhythmics is a method of music education that was created by Jacques Dalcroze in the late Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century. It can be described as music through movement.

It remains relevant today as a pedagogical approach and has been adapted to the requirements of modern educational principles. It lends itself very favourably to the child’s natural instinct to move and explore the world through many senses.

It is also used in many contexts including Early years Music Education, Music with Seniors, Music for Children and Adults with additional learning needs, Music Therapy and also, in the training of dancers and actors.

There are three core areas which are developed in all Dalcroze training. These are:


The physical embodiment of music.


A way for students to explore and express musical and other artistic concepts, thereby liberating their creativity and gaining an understanding of a range of musical processes


Development of Aural training and inner hearing through movement (pitch, rhythm, phrasing and form)

The taster day invites you to experience Dalcroze Rhythmics, Improvisation and Solfege classes for yourself.
