Dalcroze Eurhythmics is a music education method in which students learn about and develop musical skill through movement. The body is used as a musical instrument in itself: clapping, running, swinging arms, vocalization, etc., to explore how movement affects music and vice versa. The class is full of movement, since memories based on physical experiences are comparatively more vivid in our minds than ones generated through aural or visual learning. For younger children and musical beginners, Dalcroze is used to explore all the aspects of music, whereas with more experienced music students, rhythm becomes a sort of focal point in Dalcroze training.

The popular series of monthly concerts in the galleries featuring young artists from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the joint program with Case Western Reserve University’s early and baroque music programs enters its fifth season.
