The Dalcroze School of Boston's courses:

‣Teach fluid expression as well as precision in music




Precision is Not Enough.

Two musicians play the exact same score. 
They both play it perfectly: no mistakes.
And yet one performance moves you to your core, evoking a powerful response. And the other... just doesn't matter.
What is the difference?
And how do you teach that? 

Music Moves Us.

Dalcroze Education offers a way to learn both the accuracy and also the expression you need to make your music matter. In joyful, social experiences, students learn music by using their bodies as their principal instruments.

The body can know tiny details that would take too many words to say. All the tiny shifts of weight, momentum, flow. And yet these are the details that make the difference between music that is full of vitality and music that is just an organization of rhythms and pitches.

Expand Your Musical Intuition.

Dalcroze Education invites you to deepen your musicality and musicianship by knowing music through the body. 

Active listening, joy, fun social engagement and experiential discovery are at the core of each course, whether for adults or for children

For Children: A Seven-Year Curriculum

DSB offers children a sequential seven-year curriculum starting as at age five. Graduates gain a musical competency equivalent to a college-level conservatory freshman.  

For Adults: Hone Your Skills & Knowledge

DSB offers adults (beginners - professionals) a fundamentally different way to engage with musical concepts you've known all your musical life. Own the skills in a deeper, more integrated way — and apply them to make your music come even more alive.
