Recovering Disembodied Spirits: Teaching Movement to Musicians
Understanding physical movement is an integral part of learning to make music. This article presents the action research the author has pursued for the past ten years, drawing on her interactions with students and with other performing musicians. The narrative provides a theoretical underpinning for the teaching practices discussed. It provides examples of musicians' movement with analyses of the anatomical structures involved, and it discusses the influences of bodily perception on observing and learning movement (e.g. the body map). The implications of the study are to provide a somatic foundation for music education and thereby to enhance the understanding of music as embodied experience.
