Lessons can be conducted in either Japanese, English, French or Chinese. Do let us if you have any preference, it could be an excellent opportunity for you to learn piano and a new language simultaneously!

Dalcroze Eurhythmics

2-5 years old (3 lessons/month)

Created by the Swiss musician and educator Emile Jaques-Dalcroze (hence its name), Dalcroze Eurhythmics engages students to learn music through movements. How long is a quarter note? What does it mean for a sound to be strong? These might sound simple, however they are not easy to comprehend. Understanding musical concepts through body movements and space helps establish a deeper relationship to music. Rather than just playing or listening to music, skills such as expressiveness, creativity, communication, unique personality are developed, which are all equally important in a musician. 

※ Do note that this lesson is in Japanese.

Taught by a native speaker, ABC Eurhythmics combines the learning of English with musical games and rhythmical activities. In addition, since the teacher is a certified Dalcroze Eurhythmics teacher, the child will not only acquire linguistic skills, but also learn the basics of music in English, and develop communication, listening skills and self-expression that are vital for both English and music.

 

Lessons are conducted completely in English without Japanese aid, so students get used to the sounds and enunciation of English much quicker.
