Experiencing Music Through Eurhythmics
A New Music Course offered Winter Quarter

Instructor: Dr. Susan Chess
Course Number: Dance 694
Call Number: 21556-9 B
Credit Hours: 3 U G
Day and Time: Tuesdays 5:00 – 7:00 PM
Place: Studio 2 in Sullivant Hall

This course is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. Not open to students who have had Music 757 Eurythmics.

Dalcroze Eurythmics is an approach to teaching music that was devised by Emile Jaques-Dalcroze. It uses the expression of musical concepts through physical movement, but employs other modes of musical experience as well. Three main elements in Eurhythmics are movement, solf├Ęge (which is a technique for singing music at sight), and improvisation. All of these experiences will be guided in a step-by-step incremental fashion so that the participant can continuously apply and gain knowledge while enjoying the process!
