Dalcroze



Beginning Musicianship/Dalcroze I (Eurhythmics)

Ideal for young students ages 5 - 7 years old who are just beginning to learn an instrument. Basic Musicianship is a creative and joyful approach to introductory musical concepts including the musical alphabet, the steps of a major scale, and basic music notation. This interactive approach helps to familiarize students with the fundamental musical building blocks through body action and singing. This class is designed to prepare students for, and enhance their first years of instrumental training.


Dalcroze Eurhythmics requires strong cognitive function which cultivates the attentiveness of young musicians. The class consists of movement, solfege, and improvisation in order to attain well-rounded musicianship. In this introductory Dalcroze class, we focus on “quick reaction”. Students respond to basic musical subjects including, but not limited to binary beat and ternary beat, rests, phrase, intervals, two voice listening, simple meter & compound meter, five note singing improvisation, and canon. One parent must accompany each student.

New students, please contact Mari Izumi at [email protected] for an in-person assessment prior to enrolling.

Dalcroze II (Eurhythmics)
The Dalcroze philosophy relies on solfege, eurhythmics, and improvisation, which our experienced faculty uses to lay the foundation for students serious about instrumental study. Class activities center on vocal awareness, ear training, and sight-singing. Other exercises develop musicianship skills. A kinetic approach builds up “muscle memory,” a trait key to the spontaneous musician. Students may need to be assessed to ensure readiness for class, contact Mari Izumi at [email protected] prior to enrolling or discuss options with Ms. Sawada to continue in Elementary Music Theory IA.
