Body Music – clapping, slapping, snapping, stepping and vocalizing – is an amalgam of composition and choreography, music you can see, dance you can hear. Likely the first music/dance, the various Body Musics of the world contain kinesthetic ‘libraries’ of memories and cultural heritage, and blur the lines between music and dance. Keith Terry, a pioneer of contemporary Body Music since 1978, has developed a methodology widely utilized by professional artists, educators and others for skill building, coordination, rhythmic timing and exploration, and ensemble awareness. Body Music Mini-Lessons are focused activities for exploring the art form, and useful activities for teachers of any subject to explore with students.
Sort Mini-Lessons by level, keywords, and intended audience. While all lessons are suitable for a General audience of anyone interested in the art form, we will be also adding material directed specifically to Teachers who want to learn how to lead Body Music activities.
