026412 Music Moves




This subject explores musical 'knowing' through the moving body – an embodied cognition approach. Through the development of movement and dance skills, students are provided with ways of demonstrating their musical understanding in response to a range of repertoire, including works by Australian composers, and students' own compositions. Literature, stories, dance and art works combine to develop rich scenarios for interpretation of musical ideas. Insights into musical learning through an embodied approach are analysed through neuroscientific and psychological research.
