Preparing for Class
Dress Comfortably: Dalcroze is an experiential way of learning music through the body. Please dress for comfortable movement. We recommend loose clothing that will make it easy to move like shorts, yoga pants, sweat pants and a short sleeve/long sleeve t-shirt. Please avoid jeans, and restrictive clothing. If dresses are worn, please wear shorts underneath so the student will feel comfortable moving freely.
Take off shoes & socks: Dalcroze classes are done barefoot. This is because in Dalcroze Education, the body is the principle instrument. We learn musical nuance through movement. (Ever try playing the piano with boxing gloves or mittens?). Please contact the instructor prior to the start of the course should have any questions or concerns about this.
What to bring to class: Please bring a three-ring binder and a water bottle.
As a form of respect to fellow students and the teacher, classes with the Dalcroze School of Boston start punctually.
