Church Street School for Music and Art is…

the only not-for-profit community school for the arts in Lower Manhattan.  Located in Tribeca since 1990, we are a place where students of all ages share art and music experiences together.  We specialize in process-based programs that help each individual find their unique creative voice.

We are closed for Presidents Week. Join us for Vacation Camps February 16-19th!

Learn about Dalcroze Eurythmics, the teaching method used for Church Street School’s early childhood music classes!

In this post, CSS founder Lisa Ecklund-Flores writes about the Dalcroze Method, the whole-body music education technique created by composer and educator Emil Jacques-Dalcroze in the early twentieth century. A unique musical experience, the Dalcroze Method is used in Church Street School’s music classes to motivate the students’ concentration and coordination of ear, mind, and body.
