About the Event

Music Moves for Piano is a new piano method for the 21st century that builds on Orff, Kodaly, Suzuki, and Dalcroze and applies Edwin E. Gordon's Music Learning Theory to the teaching of piano. Music Learning Theory is the same as Gordon's 'theories of audiation' and is a sequential learning process that guides students to hear and perform music with understanding. The music learning process, similar to the language learning model, is: 1) listen 2) speak; perform; acquire a rhythm and tonal music vocabulary by singing, chanting, and moving 3) think, improvise, audiate 4) read 5) write.

This piano method can be used for beginning students of all ages and levels. The purpose of Music Moves for Piano is to help students learn how to audiate and how to play the piano. This method provides a solid foundation for developing complete music literacy.

In Music Moves for Piano students learn to:

Think about music in the context of a meter and a tonality

Improvise, play by ear, transpose, and harmonize

Sing and play - accompany singers and instrumentalists

Perform with comfort and fluency in a variety of social settings

Play with technical ease and freedom from muscular tension

Listen to and perform music with understanding - students audiate

Compose, arrange, read, and write music notation

Become independent music thinkers
