Dalcroze Eurhythmics for Children
A Whole Body Musical Experience for Children ages 3 to 7
Vilma Vargo, Instructor for Berea
Children respond to music from their very earliest days. Dalcroze Eurythmics is a way to build on a child's natural musical responses and incorporate learning as play. Through musical exercises children develop coordination, listening ability, and musical expression. Children who begin with Dalcroze can move easily into other music studies such as Suzuki or conventional music instruction. Older children learn intervals, chord structures, and basic composition - all in the context of "playing with music." These classes allow the student to grow into music education and are recommended as a stepping-stone and compliment to learning an instrument.
Parents/Guardians of Dalcroze Students are not permitted to be in the Music+Rhythm+Movement classroom during sessions; however, the Early Childhood Suite includes a spacious classroom and a parent/sibling observation room that is equipped with a one-way mirror window and sound reproduction from the classroom allowing parents to observe their children's progress during classes. Also, Visitor's Day is held during the final class meeting of each course and gives parents the opportunity to be a part of their child's experience. Parents of children age 3 may be requested to attend the first few sessions to assist their children in making the adjustment to a new experience.
