Includes online work, summer workshops
The newly created American Eurythmics Society is growing the approach nationwide and UK’s program will be considered on the cutting edge.
“The Dalcroze approach expands musicianship exponentially,” said Martina Vasil, director of the Orff Schulwerk and Dalcroze Summer Institute at UK. “You do not have to be an expert in piano playing to participate in Dalcroze, nor do you have to be a music teacher. A love of music and a desire to engage the people you work with in musical activities is all that is required.”
The UK graduate certificate’s main target is school music teachers, but eurhythmics training benefits all musicians and many others such as dancers, music therapists and actors. To earn the certificate, students will:
- Take three online Dalcroze classes (offered during the fall, spring and second summer sessions)
- Participate in at least two 10-day summer training workshops
- Complete a capstone project.
