I have a dream – a dream to bring Dalcroze Eurhythmics to every student’s piano lesson! In previous blog, I shared the story of how I was hooked the first time I experienced Dalcroze Eurhythmics and how I wished that every child could learn music this way.
Dalcroze Eurhythmics is the Music Training I wish I had when I was a child.
I am so excited to show a series of videos by Dr. Marla Butke and Dr. David Frego.
Video 2 Canon Overlapping and Continuous (Lesson plan #16, 25, 61, 94)
Instead of having a passive listening experience, the students build deeper listening skills by actively expressing the music in their movement.
This activity is great for
* group and private lesson settings
* children and adults of all ages
If you would like to see the lesson plan and detailed instruction, make sure to check out Dr. Marla and Dr. Frego’s book Meaningful Movement.
Listed below is a sample lesson plan
There are 3 more lesson plans for “Canon” that goes from beginner to advanced level. (Lesson plan #16,25,61, and 94)
You’ll find all the Lesson plans in the book Meaningful Movement.
