The Music Training I Wish I Had When I Was a Child Part 3
“Pure Joy” is what I experience in Dalcroze Eurhythmics lesson.
I feel like a kid again when I am in the Eurhythmics classroom. Many students dread learning advanced music concepts such as mixed meter, syncopation, polyrhythms. In Eurhythmics, learning complicated music concepts is no longer intimidating but fun! Eurhythmics invite students to learn in a creative and joyous environment.
I had my first Dalcroze lesson in college. After only one-hour session, I couldn’t help but asking myself: “Why didn’t I know about this earlier? I wish I learned music this way when I was a child!” The class, taught by Eurhythmics Master Teacher Dr. Frego, was MAGICAL. Abstract music concepts became EASY and I can SEE the beat through the body movement.
