I write mostly about music and music education from my perspective as a Dalcroze teacher.
Dancer/choreographer Dawn Pratson and I are doing a series of free Open Rehearsals (online) beginning Saturday, March 10. Click here to learn more. This is part of the residency of my group “Loco Motors” with the New York Chapter of the Dalcroze Society of America.
- Articles on the Musical Subjects I am thinking about and working with in the classroom.
- During the lockdown, I posted short articles on Dalcroze subjects and materials for Dalcroze Practice at home.
- In 2017, I wrote about one class of 7-9 year-olds for a whole year.
For Adult Dalcroze Students and Practitioners:
Ways to think about specific musical subject in your practice and for your teaching: Meter, Beat, Subdivision, Notation, Whole and Half Steps
