About Eurhythmics Classes

In eurhythmics classes, students learn concepts of rhythm, structure, and musical expression by playing games that employ physical movement. Participating in eurhythmics classes before beginning a musical instrument can give young students a strong musical foundation, enabling them to make stronger progress when they select a particular instrument to study.
