I got the idea for this post from JoAnn Jordan’s post related to ABC’s of Music Therapy. JoAnn posted a quote regarding the kinesthetic part of music therapy that I completely agree with!
“I hear and I forget. I see and I understand. I do and I remember.”
Personally, I learn by doing, by moving, by trying things, and by playing around. I have to explore and actually feel things in order to completely grasp a new concept. I know this is the same for so many of my clients. We do A LOT of moving, playing, and exploring in all of our session. The movement and activity are both a great way to engage my clients and help them learn new concepts. You may have noticed by exploring My Music Page that many of the songs I write or the interventions I post on the Blog include movement, actions, or doing of some sort. Below are some of the links to interventions I have created.
