What is the Dalcroze approach?

The Dalcroze Approach is a way of learning music through movement. It focuses on the development of musicianship through the three areas of rhythmics, ear-training and improvisation. 

Shannon participated in Dalcroze training in Australia and the UK and is in the final stages of completing the Dalcroze certificate. She is one of the few practitioners in Australia applying a movement-based approach to string teaching. Shannon has also attended several international Dalcroze workshops including:

  • Jacques-Dalcroze International Congress 2019 (Switzerland)

  • International Conference of Dalcroze Studies 3 (Poland)

  • Dalcroze, Kodály, and Orff Symposium (Hungary)
