100 Words: Seeing Music

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.
