Why movement in a music class? (part 1/5)

Good question.
Consider these stats...

We remember more when movement is part of the learning process!

In fact, we remember...
  • 10% of what we read
  • 20% of what we hear
  • 50% of what we hear and see
  • 70% of what we hear, see and say
  • 90% of what we hear, see, say and DO!
I keep this list of stats near my planning desk to remind me to plan activities that keep the body connected to the learning process.


    1. This is great! I want to include it in a presentation I'll be giving in March. Do you happen to know the original source for it?

    2. It is great! I am pretty sure I learned about that from Anne Green Gilbert. I studied with her and you can learn more about her at
