Presenter: Jacqueline Vann
Dalcroze Eurhythmics is both the name of the method and the name of the person who created the method – Emile Jaques-Dalcroze. Often known simply as Dalcroze, it is an active method of music education that puts the body at the centre of learning. It developed at a very interesting moment in time historically and with respect to education in general. The method is as relevant today as it was at the end of the 19th century (one might argue that it is more relevant.) This session will look at the influences that shaped the method, the way learning happens and the role of teacher and learner. There will be games and exercises to illustrate the way the method works and this session will be interesting for anyone wanting an overview of the key principles of Dalcroze Eurhythmics.
Registration closes on 15th August at 9am UK time!
