Dalcroze Eurhythmics: A Kinesthetic Approach to Music Learning

Thursday, April 16, 2020 from 08:30 – 12:00, 13:00 - 17:30
Cost: $120 + GST
Instructor: Dr. R. J. David Frego

This on-campus workshop will approach the elements of music through kinesthetic awareness. Participants will be actively engaged in music making through movement—connecting the brain to the body. Activities will incorporate purposeful movement, rhythmic solfège, and music improvisation as teaching approaches. These skills will then be applied in the general, choral and instrumental music settings. Transfers will also be made for special needs populations, and teaching areas with space constraints.

Enroll in the workshop through the Eventbrite event.
