Foundation Studies in Music Out of Anthroposophy


Resonare begins a new cycle in September 2013. 

This course, currently in its 6th year, is open to all who have an interest in exploring the elements of music. The primary focus is on developing one’s capacities for listening and investigating the qualities of tone. For this exploration, we turn to the lyre with its unique ability to release musical tone from the physicality of the instrument. Course content includes singing, music theory, and the study of Rudolf Steiner’s lectures on the nature of music. Participants explore the relationship to intervals and are given the opportunity to apply this understanding to improvisation.  Movement sessions, including Spacial Dynamics and Eurythmy, form an important aspect of each weekend.

Working in a small group, the structure is designed to provide ample time for experiential learning in a supportive environment. The schedule for the Resonare Music Foundation course consists of five long weekends from September 2013 through May 2014. We begin with a supper each Thursday evening and end by mid-day Sunday.

The dates for the 2013-2014 cycle are: Sept 12-15, Nov 7-10, Jan 9-12, Mar 6-9, May 1-4. The tuition for the full year is $1950. Sessions take place at the Harmonia Center for Instrumental and Vocal Music Therapy, based in Philmont, NY. 

*Applications are now being accepted for September.
