Move the Music!

Length: 30-45 minutes

Single workshop or multi-day residency • Best suited for a maximum group of 15

Move the Music! is a cross-cultural program that gives children music-making tools:

  • Through games that get participants singing, galloping, speaking, laughing and playing instruments from drums to recycled junk percussion.
  • Through kinesthetic games where children improvise movement responses to the music and learn how musical concepts feel in their own bodies.

MOVE THE MUSIC!:

  • Is always fresh because all music is improvised live, in the classroom.
  • Gives children the unique experience of having the music follow their movement as well as exploring how they can feel the music in their bodies.
  • Nurtures creative problem solving, self-expression, and leadership skill
  • Is based on the widely recognized Dalcroze Eurhythmics approach, in which Guy holds international certification as well a Masters degree.
  • Residencies for older children often culminate in participant-produced CDs or songwriting for musical plays. Ask us for samples of previous works!
