We're so glad you'll be visiting The Institute for Jaques-Dalcroze Education! We have been providing a quality Jaques-Dalcroze experience to musicians and musician educators since 2002, when Monica Dale and Jack Stevenson began the Institute at the University of Maryland, College Park.
It was in 2013, when the Institute incorporated under the ownership of Jack Stevenson and relocated to the beautiful campus of Monocacy Manor nestled in the hills of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Our dynamic curriculum is designed to empower musicians to engage music with their bodies, reeducate their ears, and transform their teaching.
During your stay we encourage you take advantage of this opportunity to focus on your personal musical growth, to strengthen your teaching, and enjoy this short time away from those day-to-day cares.
