Rythmique Music School is dedicated to providing a vibrant environment for musical discovery to the Salt Lake Valley community.
"Mira Larson is an accomplished cellist and the only certified teacher of Dalcroze Eurhythmics in the state of Utah. A labor of love, Rythmique Music School is where she mostly shares her wonder for music, love of movement, and expertise with children ages 3 through mature adults. She also performs as a cellist around Salt Lake City and across the states. Having been raised in a Belgian-American family, Mira offers instruction in English and French.”
"Mira is an exceptional teacher and musician! She provides a complete music education, emphasizing not only instrumental skills but also movement, singing, aural skills, and rhythm and note reading. She is absolutely wonderful with children, and our son adores her—he really looks forward to his lesson each week! Mira’s disciplined and supportive approach enables rapid progress, which is extremely motivating."

"Thank you so much for the online Dalcroze classes as a part of the Suzuki gathering. I am totally and completely new to Dalcroze, but was certainly engaged and, by the end, impressed with what the kids had learned. Please put us on your mailing list if you are going to offer any online classes.”

"I thought you did a wonderful job teaching Dalcroze over zoom! Once my kids caught on to your style of teaching, they both really enjoyed the class and looked forward to it every day. The songs were catchy and we’ve been singing them all day! I hope we get to meet you in person next year!”

Where can I rent or buy a cello?
When you start lessons, I will help you find a cello to rent or buy. This is your preference. Several shops count rental fees towards an instrument purchase, and I most often work with Peter Prier & Sons Violins. For more information, please see the resources page.
Do you teach adults?
Yes! I enjoy teaching students at any age and level who demonstrate commitment and a desire to learn and progress.
Should I start my child on instrument lessons, or Dalcroze Eurhythmics?
I have found that children who start their training with Dalcroze classes make exponentially faster progress once they begin learning an instrument. With musical concepts in place, these students often are motivated practicers.
Which one is right for me?
Dalcroze Eurhythmics 1
4-6 year olds
The instructor uses movement, rhythm games, songs, and stories as keys to exploring musical concepts.
Dalcroze Eurhythmics 2
5-7 year olds
Building on DE 1, or as an entry point, this class reviews and refines musical concepts of DE1. New rhythms and concepts are added.
Dalcroze Eurhythmics 3
8-11 year olds
A joyful space for accelerated musical learning on a deep level, this class is geared towards students who play an instrument and are familiar with at least basic musical notation.
