Emma DixonDalcroze classes
We are delighted to welcome back once again Emma Dixon to teach dalcroze classes on each part of the course. The classes are fun and very rewarding – enjoy a chance to express yourself away from the piano!
Emma began playing the cello at the age of 11 and music has been her passion ever since. After progressing through the orchestras at school and the local youth orchestras in her home town of Sheffield, Emma went on to study the cello at the Royal Northern College of Music where she gained her BMus(hons) degree followed by a Master Of Music degree in cello performance. As a chamber musician and orchestral player Emma has performed throughout the UK and abroad on modern and baroque instruments. After graduating she completed two further years study of Dalcroze Rhythmics, Kodaly, improvisation and pedagogy to gain a Certificate in Dalcroze Eurhythmics.
Emma has always loved teaching the cello and is passionate about inclusive music education, finding new and exciting ways to inspire and motivate young people and adults to enjoy making and exploring music. She teaches cello to students of all ages and levels, works as a chamber music coach and as a Dalcroze musicianship tutor. She is a mentor for Artis Performing Arts Education and designs and delivers music outreach projects for Manchester Camerata with a focus on Dalcroze and Early Years. Emma also regularly delivers classes and workshops for students and teachers on summer schools and conferences. She lives in Glossop, Derbyshire with her husband and three young children.
