The dalcroze approach to music education is recognized as an innovative and exceptional way to develop musical talent in children and adults alike.

Children develop rhythmic skills and expressiveness through eurhythmics and musical dramatizations of children’s stories. Explore creativity through vocal, instrumental and movement improvisations and learn to play songs on percussion instruments and the xylophone. Students age 5 years and above develop rhythm, pitch notation and dictation skills in an age-appropriate and fun manner, along with the theory concepts that accompany them.
