This workshop is an opportunity for music teachers to learn about the Dalcroze methodology in an experiential, three-day workshop. Teachers that already have experience with this teaching paradigm will benefit from further learning. Dr. Tom Parente is a certified Dalcroze instructor with decades of experience teaching and guiding pre-service and in-service teachers in the various ways to include movement study to their music teaching.
This course will provide in-service teachers with valuable tools to encompass music and movement, improvisation and creative work to their classes, all required areas of the Core Standards.
The workshop will encompass the three major areas of Dalcroze: movement, Solfège, and piano improvisation over a three-morning workshop intensive. Professional development hours are available.

Dr. Parente had come to one of our intro to music education classes and he conducted a Dalcroze method workshop. Learning about Dalcroze and getting to experience what the method is like in real life was amazing. I noticed that it kept me and my colleagues engaged and energized. Learning from Dr. Parente was fantastic and Im glad I got the chance to work with him. He knew how to keep the students interested. I had a blast in this workshop and I will definitely be thinking about the Dalcroze method as a teaching method in the future.

Dalcroze class was very engaging and interactive. It helped give me a new perspective on how Dalcroze is taught and how it could be useful in the classroom. Dr. Parente made the Dalcroze class super interesting and did a great job of showing us how we can use Dalcroze methodology in our classrooms in the future
