Youth Classes & Experiences
An introduction to the basics of music including note values, time signatures, dynamics, and more. Imagination is key in these classes as we move like bears, foxes, skunks, dragons, trees, snowflakes and more! This class is led by the piano and a Dalcroze teacher.
Our imagination takes us many places as we learn how the different musical elements feel as we move them. This feeling is translated into descriptions and words as we describe how the music sounded and how it made us want to move. These descriptions are named as musical terms that are the building blocks of music. Learning first through the body and movement enables long-term retention and understanding of music theory concepts.

Using Dalcroze School of the Rockies Curriculum designed by Dr. Jeremy Dittus, we explore theory and musicality using Dalcroze techniques which include playful movement imagination and creativity.
This five year curriculum series is a comprehensive music education covering many keys, times, rhythms, syncopation, aural skills, nuance, and expression elements.
This series has an at-home practice requirement of 10 minutes per day 5 days per week to enhance learning.
Would you like your students to have a unique Dalcroze experience? Maybe you have a musical topic in mind or you just want your students to experience moving purposefully in response to music to enhance their learning. Let's customize a workshop for your group.
