Dalcroze Education opens us up to fresh possibilities as musicians, educators, and dancers.

Teaching Artist: Ruth Alperson, Diplôme d’Études Supérieur

Explore and experience musical elements through the Dalcroze approach to a Baroque aria.

During our two-hour workshop, we will cover as much of the following goals that time allows. I plan to present a Baroque aria as the centerpiece of the lesson. This work provides excellent examples of subdivision, rhythm pattern, changing meter, phrase, and form. Work in Eurhythmics will allow us to experience and explore these subjects. Exercises in Solfège will help us grasp the melodic and harmonic elements in the work, while developing inner hearing. The experiential nature of the Dalcroze work allows us to internalize elements of the piece as we work toward meaning.
