Improvisation offers the opportunity to experiment at the instrument with rhythm, melody and form, according to the student's own design.
The Summer Intensive offers adult students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Dalcroze method, which includes studying rhythm, pitch and harmony through creative movement and physical, vocal and instrumental improvisation. Summer Intensive classes can lead towards Dalcroze certification at the Certificate and License levels.
How do I know what level to register for?
Improvisation placement can be based on the amount and kind of experience you’ve had with improvisation. Level 1 is good for those with little or no experience improvising, or for those looking to gain more experience improvising on the piano. Level 2 is good for those with some experience improvising (either with piano another instrument as a primary instrument). Though both sections will address the use of improvisation in the Dalcroze classroom, Level 2 will emphasize this more. For this reason, some may wish to attend the beginning section for pedagogical reasons even though they are experienced improvisers.
Certificate Track Improvisation is intended for those preparing for Level 2 and 3 exams.
