Body Music with Keith Terry, Part Three.
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.
Mini-Lessons 0.0-4.9 are lessons that already exist on Keith's four Body Music Videos, available here a la carte. The 0.0 Mini-Lessons are foundational activities that are a good place to start, then you can choose 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 adding material directed specifically to Teachers who want to learn how to lead Body Music activities, and for Students to directly follow, as a contained activity.
