This course is designed for those who are interested in learning the basic fundamentals of music. This course is also geared towards those that aspire to be music educators and especially those that are interested in early childhood music education. Awakening the kinesthetic memory of the body helps strengthen all aspects of musicianship. In his essay Jacques Dalcroze states that, "Eurthythmics is a method of musical education. It tries to develop simultaneously the sense of hearing, the feeling for tone and harmony, the instinct for rhythm, and the desire for order. By means of a series of exercises which develop muscular elasticity, and discipline the bodily movements in space, in duration, and in all shades of energy, the hearing-sense is strengthened to such a degree that it invades the entire organism and finally becomes converted into vocal and instrumental expression." The course includes Dalcroze Solfege, Eurhythmics (movement), and improvisation.
