Sept. 5, 2012 — Come experience a day of music, teaching and learning with Dr. David Frego, world renowned Dalcroze clinician.
Dr. Frego will visit the Crager Room of Morehead State University’s Adron Doran University Center on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. for an introduction of folks to the Dalcroze methodology of music learning and music teaching.
The cost of the event is $20 for preregistration or $25 at the event. For students, preregistration is $10 or $15 at the door.
“If you are a musician, it will help you become a more accurate and expressive musician. If you are a teacher, it will enhance your work with music and non-music-related concepts in your classroom. It can be counted as a professional development day with certificate for teachers who complete the workshop,” said Lori Baruth, assistant professor of music.
Dr. Frego is chair of the Music Department and holds the Blumberg Endowed Professorship of Music at the University of Texas at San Antonio. He received his Ph.D. degree from Florida State University and has obtained both a license and certification in Dalcroze Eurhythmics from Carnegie Mellon University. He received his Master of Music Education and Master of Music, Choral Performance degrees from FSU.
As an expert in Dalcroze Eurhythmics, Dr. Frego has received international recognition for his research. The Dalcroze method of music education is experiencing music through movement, solfège, and improvisation. Frego’s workshop will provide many ideas for music teachers.
Prior to UTSA, he was associate director of the School of Music and associate professor of music education and Dalcroze Eurhythmics at The Ohio State University.
Dr. Frego is admired nationally and internationally as a Dalcroze clinician and performs numerous workshops per year, including workshops in Bosnia-Herzegovina, France, Japan and Egypt.
