Project Statement

I believe that music enhances the quality of life. Music is important to our mind and spirit. Learning music at an early age is beneficial to kidsí development. The purpose of this visual teaching tool is to be useful in teaching basic skills in the discipline of music in an engaging and effective way. This project is based on the Dalcroze Eurhythmics approach. This method of teaching music is revolutionary because it involves the whole body, mind and emotions. Movement is the essence of it. It is a different approach because its focus is not only on musical intelligence but on kinesthetic intelligence as well. I am interested in incorporating a visual component into this method and enhance the learning process.
