Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, 1865-1950, was an educational pioneer, musician, and creative artist. This book gives us a fascinating insight into the inception and development of his work, from the end of the last century up to the present day. It traces his growing ideas on the use of movement and of improvisation in the process of music learning, and the application of these ideas to the vital experiencing of musical material, both for children and adults.

Industry Reviews

`Drawing extensively both upon archive materials and on experience in teaching children and adults, the author has produced a valuable reference work for advanced students and professionals in music education and music therapy that clearly demonstrates the wide applicablity of Dalcroze's teachings in today's diverse educational settings.' E. Franklin, Winthrop College, Choice, April '92 'Marie-Laure Bachmann has accomplished a difficult synthesis. Not only does she describe in detail specific games and other movement activities that are effective in helping students learn about and perform music, but she has also suffused these materials with a sensitive evocation of the spirit of Émile Jaques-Dalcroze's work. Bachmann achieves a satisfying balance in the overall design of her book ... rich in content ... this book should be read by all who are serious about Dalcroze studies.' Julia Schnebly-Black, Dalcroze Society of America, Notes, March 1993 'This book, faithful to the original title, is a very detailed account of the nature and development of Jaques-Dalcroze's work. In the relatively sparse literature on this subject this is an interesting and valuable contribution to the field.' International Journal of Music Education, Numer 20, 1992 'the book offers a well-documented and sensitive analysis of the subject from an unusually skillful kaleidoscopic point of view.' American Music Teacher, August/September 1993
