Dalcroze Classes

Pre-school to Primary 5 (ages 4 to 9)

These classes involve children in feeling music through movement and to develop an embodied understanding of music and are excellent pre and co-instrumental training. 

Pupils develop the following skills:

  • physical awareness and control, including posture; co-ordination;
  • listening skills;
  • understanding of rhythm and metre;
  • awareness of pitch and the ability to be expressive.

Longer-term, the musical skills learned through Dalcroze stay with the children forever, informing their listening and increasing their enjoyment of all types of music.

We recommend (though it is not imperative) that these classes are taken with the appropriate Kodály class.
