Dalcroze Eurhythmics: Time, Space, Energy (MFN2174.01)

Chris Rose

We performers, makers, and listeners think of sound as music’s medium, but we don’t just hear music: we feel it. We will play with embodiment and as the origin of dynamic, felt experience and with proprioception as the bridge connecting our innate musical understanding to the abstract language of musical sound. Students’ weekly homework–listening, conducting, and following scores–will support sessions of movement and singing to understand notes and rhythms as the building blocks of expression. Meredith Monk, herself a Dalcroze Eurhythmics student, said it this way: “All musical truth resides in the body.”
