The big girls had a special treat today. A Dalcroze instructor from Colorado came up to play with the children in our Suzuki piano studio. They had a grand time with movement, dance and music!
I really wasn’t sure what to expect, as some of the online descriptions of Dalcroze made it sound rather bizarre. I ended up very impressed at the way it combined movement with creativity, music theory, analysis, tone training, and so many other cognitive functions.
It would be the ideal physical education for the children in our family–if there was an instructor locally.
The children had a grand time, and it was definitely a worthwhile experience. Next time I’ll also take the camera to capture their movement.
