Frequently Asked Questions
How is this curriculum differant from other programs?
This a curriculum that emphasizes integration. We use gross and fine motor movement to learn and incorporate the understanding of the music.
This process involves a neurologic and psycho-physiologic understanding- addressing how our emotional state affects our perception and performance of music.
The practise is also about how we relate to others. The integrity of our expression and our receptivity to other(s) as the basis of creating true harmony.
Once students have concrete experiences of music- we can use the learning and metaphorically address higher concerns.
Do you work with reading music notation?
A strength of this approach is we develop a strong sense of reading by arriving at reading by starting with concrete physical learning and then representing that experience in a transitional notation system.
