Welcome to the Dalcroze Society of America

 

Based on the artistic and pedagogical principles of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, the Dalcroze approach teaches an understanding of music's fundamental concepts, expressive meanings, and deep connections to other arts and activities. Performers, teachers, dancers, actors, children, and senior citizens can all benefit from this approach which incorporates rhythmic movement, aural training and improvisation.

"Dalcroze is particularly exciting to me because it allows [the] vital creative aspects of music making to be honed and explored while enhancing the rigor of the musicianship training we provide." Dana Zenobi

"...I was awakened to the realization that I could once again hear more clearly, feel more deeply, and see my way to a greater understanding of the multiple manners in which 'music is life.'" Patricia Shehan Campbell
