a movement-based approach to instrumental music learning & teaching

This project is my postdoctoral research. Here I develop a [practice & research]-based pedagogical framework for the integration of creative movement in the instrumental music classroom

Keywords: musical creativity, bodily freedom, multimodal learning

Classroom Study 1

In this study I act as teacher-researcher, teaching movement & improvisation based ensemble lessons to beginner instrumentalists. Currently I teach in 2 schools, all children in the 5th and 6th grade.

Classroom Study 2

This study builds on Classroom study 1, but here I collaborate with different teachers. Currently, I'm working with violin teachers.

Delphi Study

In this study I use the Delphi technique to probe experts' beliefs and ideas about and attitude towards the body, and in particular, deliberate  body movement in instrumental music teaching and learning.
