This method was developed by Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, a Swiss composer, music education and music theorist. In this method, the body is the main instrument.

Piano- Keyboard Classes
It is understandable that you may need some time to seek advice on the best instrument to suit your personal needs. The Pre-Keys Music Makers classes will help you prepare and get exposure while you make provisions for acquiring an instrument.
We can make recommendations and provide you with affordable prices on instruments and accessories. For students unable to bring instruments, a rental fee is added to your tuition fee for the use of an instrument in class. You should have access to an instrument in order to practice outside class hours.
Keyboard students should have their keyboard with music stand, keyboard bench and stand. It is highly recommended that your keyboard be transported in a case. Unless it is a powered keyboard, be sure to use BATTERIES at the back in order to facilitate ease of setup. Students without instruments/accessories can pay a rental fee for the term until they are able to purchase their own.
Steelpan students should have their steelpan/s (in case), collapsible stand and sticks.
