The Dalcroze Rhythmic- Solfège sequence provides all of the necessary building blocks to achieve success with any instrument. Rhythmic Solfège builds on the principles of learning music through movement with the addition of focused musical study on keyboard percussion; the end goal of the sequence is comprehensive musicianship!
This is a process-oriented program using the Dalcrozian tenants of joy, discovery and experiential education as its foundation, and delving into musical subjects and literature.
With the same principles and foundation as Dalcroze Eurhythmics, Rhythmic Solfège is designed to increase coordination, spatial awareness, flexibility, focus, emotional knowledge, and vocal precision.
We are grateful to The Dalcroze School of the Rockies for providing their curriculum for all of our Rhythmic Solfège classes. www.dalcrozeschooloftherockies.com
Please register no later than 24 hours before class to ensure you are sent the class materials.
All Rhythmic-Solfège™ students are required to purchase a metallophone (about $35, due at the first class). This instrument will be provided on the first day of classes and will be used throughout the Rhythmic-Solfège™ sequence (5-year sequence). Students must bring this instrument to each class along with a their workbook and completed homework assignments. Parents must practice with their child a minimum of 10 minutes, 5 days each week to ensure that their child is progressing and maximizing his or her potential.
This class has 30 sessions scheduled. The course is 28 sessions long; 2 additional sessions are included in the price in case of class cancellation. As long as fewer than 2 classes are cancelled throughout the term, no make-up sessions will be scheduled.
