Early Childhood Program

Hoff-Barthelson’s programs for young children are grounded in Dalcroze Eurhythmics—a method of teaching that pairs music and movement to catalyze the development of children’s minds and bodies. Even the very youngest children develop focus, spatial awareness, gross motor skills, social skills, and the ability to work with others—all while having fun!

Research has long demonstrated the value of movement-based learning. Noted Swiss musician and educator Émile Jaques-Dalcroze (1865-1950) understood that the use of movement facilitates musical understanding and encourages musicality. His methods form the foundation of high-quality early childhood music education programs world-wide.

Home to both a thriving early childhood music program and a Teacher Training and Certification program endorsed by the Institut Jaques-Dalcroze, Hoff-Barthelson is one of the foremost centers of early childhood music education in the United States.
