Dalcroze Taster Day February 2022

Kaye led a Taster Day at St. Andrew’s Church Centre, Mount Park Road, Ealing, W5 2RS in February 2022. The day started with an introduction to Dalcroze Eurhythmics, and sessions in rhythmics, improvisation and aural training . Kaye also presented a PowerPoint on Dalcroze Eurhythmics and Seniors Living with Dementia. At the end of the day she held a Q & A session for the participants.

Here are some quotations from the participants at the end of the day.

It was a brilliant day – there was such a range of ideas, the improvisation on names was great fun and Kaye was a wonderful, kind and passionate teacher. Thank you! Frankie

I really enjoyed the Taster Day. Lots of practical activities, very engaging. Kaye was very knowledgeable, and I came away brimming with ideas. Would definitely recommend to other music educators!  Michael

Super day with lots of great practical activities and experiences very much … lots to take away. Hamish

As well as being an excellent musician and an expert in Dalcroze Eurythmics, Kaye is a thoughtful and empathetic communicator.  Working with her was both very productive and a pleasure for everyone on the course. David
