Dalcroze Eurhythmics was developed early in the twentieth century as a pedagogical model to teach well-rounded musicians. Ongoing research to further develop this teaching technique was Dalcroze's passion until his death in 1950. Eurhythmics was designed to be a flexible model to be enhanced as more understanding of the learning process became available.
Paul Dennison developed a method initially intended for teaching general academic skills to children with learning disabilities. Dennison's pedagogical approach was actualized during the 1970s and referred to as "Brain Gyms ®." This tool has since been found beneficial for people of all ages to help focus attention and increase learning potential.
Brain function research indicates learning is optimized when the entire brain is engaged and movement is incorporated. Therefore melding Eurhythmics and Brain Gym® will cultivate a richer learning environment and facilitate improved aural and visual skills of college music students.
