In 7th grade, I owned 2 albums: Rumors and Boston.
I listened constantly until I knew every word, every note.
As a Nia teacher, I do that! Nia uses movement to emBODY music.
David Byrne connects movement and music so audiences connect to sounds they might have missed.
SEE the artistry in music. When I listen with not just ears but my whole body, I integrate body and mind, internal to external.
Notice all music: in class, on the radio, of traffic, in conversation. Notice details, nuances — then make magic and connect yourself to what you hear. Conduct!
Integrate body to sound.
