Meaningful Movement: Dalcroze Eurhythmics in the General Music Classroom

Participants will be engaged in brain to body to feelings through purposeful movement that explores the elements of music (focus, pulse, beat, duration, meter, and phrasing). Direct transfers will be made to the Orff and Kodály curriculum. Handouts will provide extensions on lessons.
