Photo competition

The FIER committee is announcing a photo competition, open to everyone. The goal is to provide the FIER with a repertoire of photos that could be used on the FIER website, as well as elsewhere, for example, Le Rythme. Send us your most captivating photos of children or adults doing eurhythmics, and you might be the proud winner of our photo competition!

There are three prizes to win:

  1. 1st prize: 300 CHF
  2. 2nd prize: 200 CHF
  3. 3rd prize: 100 CHF

The best photos will be printed and put on display during the Congress of 2015 in Geneva.

A few important points to note:

  • Each photo must be emailed in a separate attached document, format A4, minimum resolution of 300 dpi.
  • You must have the written agreement of every person in the photo that his or her image may be placed on our web site, used in other publications and displayed during the Congress. This is a legal requirement.
  • All entries must be sent to committee@fier.com. Closing date is 30 June, 2014, and the results will be published in September 2014.
  • By entering the competition, you give right of use of all photos to the FIER.

SO PICK UP YOUR CAMERAS!

“Pursuing a Jaques-Dalcroze Education-Solfège, Volume I”, an eBook by Jack Stevenson

Here is the presentation from the publisher:

It is both a comprehensive reference book and a solid training manual, with ample historical and theoretical context for Jaques-Dalcroze’s work.

Stevenson follows Jaques-Dalcroze’s logical design, developing pitch and rhythm skills concurrently. Numerous music examples and exercises provide practice with intervals, rhythmic modes, clef reading, sight-singing, improvisation and more. Making use of iBook’s capabilities, Stevenson has embedded audio files, interactive images, and a pop-up glossary, helping students to study independently or in group settings.

This new completely interactive ebook published by the Institute for Jaques-Dalcroze Education, LLC, edited by Author E. Ostrander, Ph.D, and drawings by Paul Thévenaz will be available in 51 countries at the iBooks Store January 2, 2014.

The ebook will first only available on the Apple iBooks store for 20.00 USD, formatted for Mac and iPad. Other editions formatted for Kindle and other readers will be available on Amazon around March 1, 2014.
