Congratulations! You are tapped into a musicians’ most important sense: the use of the body. After all, sound is created by movement! Musicians have two sources of feedback when they play: their sound and the way their body feels. You can learn a great deal about how a person sounds by their quality of movement.“The quality of your sound is determined by the quality of your movement.” (Barbara Conable)Develop YOUR movement vocabulary, so you can get good at helping students describe their own experience. You'll give them a lifelong tool to motivate them in practice.While you may be one of the 25% of people who give and receive feedback through somatosensory information, your students may not!Train them to get better at self-evaluation by asking them questions about how something feels when they play, or what they notice about what they are doing. Help THEM develop a vocabulary of movement qualities - like free, stiff, fluid, flexible, stuck, etc.
