Move It! Activities

Move it! activities are a way for students of all ages to connect with the expressive part of music on their journey to become more artful. The movements and gestures were created to reflect both this expressive quality and the form of each piece, embodying Dr. Feierabend’s theories of music and movement development. The movements often elicit those “goose bump” moments that happen when we truly connect with the expressive intent of the composer. 

Periodically, we will debut another new Move it! complete with a video and detailed, written directions for how to perform it. This is something exclusive to FAME members only, so we hope you enjoy this exclusive benefit of membership. 

If you’re not already a member, sign up now!
