Register for Longy's Dalcroze Institute Summer 2017
For the last 36 years, students from around the world have received their Dalcroze education through this Institute. Graduates have returned to their countries to become leaders in the field of Dalcroze Eurhyhmics.
We are looking forward to a wonderful three weeks of music making. You will learn that the whole body is musical and will grow in countless ways as a performer, composer, or teacher. The Summer Institute offers a rich variety of activities. In all classes, music is central and listening is active.
The institute starts Sunday, June 25th at 6 PM with a Welcome Registration Reception. Participants are encouraged to join faculty for a wine and cheese reception, receive schedules, information packets and to clarify questions. The last day is devoted to goodbyes in the morning, followed by exams (for credit students only).
All questions are welcome during the Institute and information will be given about the process of attaining the levels towards Dalcroze Certification.
I hope you are intrigued and ready to join us!
– Lisa Parker, Director Emeritus
