Dalcroze Teacher Workshop

Lake Sylvia Flute Institute is thrilled to present a Dalcroze Workshop by Emma Shubin. Ms. Shubin holds a Dalcroze Licensure and Certificate and has years of teaching experience at the Dalcroze School of the Rockies in CO, as well as clinics nationwide.

What is Dalcroze?

From the Dalcroze Society of America, "In a Dalcroze class, students are freed from the constraints of formal performance to experience the deep musical knowledge and feeling evoked through movement." There are three components of Dalcroze:

  1. Eurythmics (movement of the body through space)
  2. Solfege
  3. Improvisation

Each interacts with the other to create a method of embodying all aspects of music. Students might move in response to musical cues such as major vs minor or use simple props like balls or hoops to internalize abstract concepts like relative phrase lengths.

Who is this for?

This workshop is for all music teachers, whether you are attending other training at Lake Sylvia, give private lessons on any instrument, teach a general music course, or direct a large ensemble. Exact workshop curriculum will be tailored to the needs and experience of those attending. If you've never had the opportunity to explore Dalcroze before, this workshop is the perfect introduction! Those of you with some prior experience in Dalcroze will come away with a great refresher and more new games and ideas to add to your collection.
