The Marygrove Music Department was thrilled to host Professor Emeritus (CMU), clinician, and author, Timothy Caldwell on September 25th for a half-day workshop on Dalcroze Eurhythmics entitled: “The Music, the Movement and You: Using Physical Movement to Improve Performance”.
During the opening session, students from Marygrove College and several local high schools learned how musical performance begins with an internal feel for the music, a physical gesture. In the interactive session, participants a variety of physical activities to embody the different patterns, shapes and colors heard in musical compositions.
The final session featured a masterclass, in which Marygrove students [Sherry Rietz, Angel Shakespeare and Jeriel Woods] and high school students [Lauren Lenz (Troy Athens) and Anna Daugherty (Birmingham Groves)] presented a variety of songs. Each singer then had the opportunity to work with Mr. Caldwell on implementing Dalcroze techniques into his/her singing.

It’s time for new beginnings. It’s the beginning of a new year, it’s the beginning of a new semester, and we may as well make it a time for new beginnings here as well. Let’s start with a resolution! I resolve to redouble my dedication to the Marygrove College Community.
I’m very passionate about emulating the community that we at Marygrove College have inside of a virtual domain. What I mean by that is I want to take the atmosphere of community that you get from being involved with Marygrove College and have that same kind of helpfulness available in all of our social media communities.
But right now we don’t have that. And I want to find ways in which we can all help to create an online community similar to that we have available in the physical world.
