Monica Dale, instructor

Monica Dale, a nationally-recognized Dalcroze teacher, brings Level 1 – The Introductory Credential to Eastman this summer. Dalcroze Education is valuable for teachers of any instrument; it can be applied to students of all ages and levels. Dalcroze provides an experiential way of understanding music through the body. By exploring music’s structural and aesthetic elements in a physical way, students develop a stronger mind-body connection, improve musical precision and accuracy, and attain more freedom of expression. Open to collegiate and adult students, especially music teachers and performers. No previous Dalcroze experience is required; basic piano proficiency will be helpful. Students will receive Level 1 – The Introductory Credential certification from the Dalcroze Society of America upon completion of the two-week course. Please contact Howard Spindler at hspindler@esm.rochester.edu for more information about basic course requirements.
Enrollment limited to 12 students.
