Dalcroze Certification Teacher Training (for Adults)

This continuing education class is for adults who seek the musical and pedagogical enrichment that Dalcroze Eurhythmics offers, and for teachers who would like to supplement their teaching with Dalcroze Eurhythmics techniques. The class may be taken as a full-year program (with optional Dalcroze certification) or on a drop-in basis.

WCMS is the first accredited Dalcroze Teacher-Training (T2) program to be approved by the Dalcroze Society of America (DSA). The Dalcroze Certificate is an internationally recognized qualification for Dalcroze Education and for teaching Dalcroze Eurhythmics courses to children and adult beginners according to the Dalcroze principles. Dalcroze Education has three core branches of study (Eurhythmics, Solfège and Improvisation) along with two applied branches of study (Plastique Animée and Pedagogy). We will offer Level 1 and Level 2 courses, both in the same time slot, during the academic year.
