Dalcroze Continuing Education

Dalcroze Continuing Education (Adults/Teachers)

WCMS offers two types of Dalcroze Continuing Education programs:

  • Private or semi-private lessons to support the Dalcroze Professional Certificate Training (Levels 1-3), offered in-person or remotely
  • An 8-week Dalcroze Adult Enrichment Class

Introduction to Dalcroze (Lessons)

For performers, music instructors, instrumentalists, singers, conductors, composers, and adult music students! Private or semi-private lessons at WCMS are an excellent opportunity for anyone who seeks the musical and pedagogical enrichment that Dalcroze Eurhythmics offers, and for teachers who would like to supplement their teaching with Dalcroze Eurhythmics techniques.

The Professional 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). For certification details, see the DSA Certificate T2 Manual from the Dalcroze Society of America, which includes Descriptions of the DSA-Accredited Certification Credentials.

Winchester Community Music School is accredited by the Dalcroze Society of America and authorized by le Fondation de I’Institut Jaques-Dalcroze to use the Dalcroze trademark.
