Core Enrichment Offerings: Music & Movement, Ear Training, Dalcroze

Are you wondering what will be covered in your child's Core Enrichment class?  

Never fear, we'll explain it here!

Music & Movement:  This Core Enrichment class is for our youngest participants.  It draws on the pedagogical approaches of Kodaly, Orff, Kindermusik and Suzuki and teaches musical understanding through play, games, singing, and fun!

Ear Training:  This Core Enrichment class is the next step up in sophistication from Music & Movement.  This class uses Suzuki repertoire to study beginning music theory: scale patterns, pitch, rhythmic dictation, etc.

Dalcroze: This Core Enrichment is the next step up from Ear Training.  It teaches concepts of rhythm, structure, and musical expression using movement.  It focuses on allowing the student to gain physical awareness and experience of music through training that takes place through all the senses, particularly kinesthetic.  Many top-level conservatories require their music majors to study Dalcroze; how fortunate for us that it is part of ISSI's curriculum!
