Artistic Literacy: Eurhythmics for the Kodály-Inspired Classroom

With limited class time, teachers can easily diminish the value of purposeful and artistic movement in a Kodály-inspired classroom.  However, the use of Dalcroze eurhythmics has been a pillar of the Kodály philosophy since the beginning. Through movement, students more readily retain information, internalize musical concepts, and demonstrate musical expression.  The key to joyful movement in the classroom is to do it often and with a structured plan.   The children will quickly become comfortable moving through space, learn to listen with a musical ear, and represent the music with their bodies.  Participants in this session will experience physical activities to enhance their sequence of musical skills as well as increase artistry in the classroom.  Come ready to see all the opportunities that carefully planned and thoughtful movement can bring to your classroom.
