The Moving Body in the Aural Skills Classroom

A Eurythmics Based Approach

Diane J. Urista

  • Cultivates an active, multi-sensory learning experience, in which students learn by discovery and from each other.
  • Encourages students to improvise and express nuance in forming a dynamic link between musical training and artistic performance.
  • Develops the ear and also engages the kinesthetic sense, fosters mind-body connections, strengthens the powers of concentration, develops inner-hearing, short- and long-term memory, limb autonomy, and expressive freedom.
  • Enhances and works in conjunction with musical examples presented in other texts.
  • Provides an effective aural/sensory tool in the music theory classroom to complement verbal explanations.
  • Integrates easily into any traditional college or conservatory classroom and is compatible with the following systems: fixed do, moveable do, and scale degrees.
