Teaching Body Mapping to Children is an essential guide for teachers to recognize potential movement and posture problems and to help their students find free, healthy, and efficient ways to make music.
Clear definitions and useful drawings illustrate the structure of the body and healthy movement patterns. Imaginative games and activities for both individual and group instruction teach musically appropriate movement and self-awareness. Suggestions for using anatomically accurate teaching language are provided. Also addressed are the challenges that daily activities (such as texting, writing, and using a computer) present to the well-being of our students. A comprehensive list of resources adds to the value of the book.
