What is Dalcroze Education?

Dalcroze Education is a method developed in the early 20th century by Swiss musician and educator Emile Jaques-Dalcroze to teach music to his students, provide them with a solid rhythmic foundation, and enhance their musical expression.

Movement is a key component of Dalcroze Education, as it allows the student to gain physical awareness and reinforce rhythmic concepts kinesthetically.
