Why movement in a music class? (part 2/5)

Movement in music learning...
  • keeps brains attentive (keeps us awake!)
  • keeps bodies active
  • releases energy
  • relaxes the body
  • brings life to the music
  • allows for more ways to express musicality (beyond expression through singing, playing instruments or composing/drawing music)
  • reminds us to breathe while we are learning
  • increases a child's sense of well-being (we're happier)
  • is a confidence-builder  
  • increases our retention (we remember more!)
  • in the ORFF approach to teaching music, music and dance are considered a unified element.  Music is not taught without movement and movement is not taught without music.

 What do you think about this?
