Music for Creative Movement - 3 CD set composed by John Feierabend. Music Education. CD. Published by GIA Publications (GI.G-CD-903).

This 3 CD set offers a wealth of carefully selected classical works to inspire children and help them to experience the expressive artistry of music through creative movement.

Based on John M. Feierabend's theories of music and movement development, these musical selections are organized into themes adapted from the work of movement specialist Rudolf von Laban including: Light/Gentle, Heavy/Strong, Sustained, Sudden, Slow/Bound, Quick/Free, Relaxed, Tense, Joyful, and Combinations!

The ability to express music through movement depends on the development of a personal movement vocabulary. The companion text, The Book of Movement Exploration by John M. Feierabend and Jane Kahn, provides activities and examples that will inspire you and your students to create wonder-full movement and dance experiences.

These 73 short classical pieces are also organized into the various Laban themes to provide an ideal "soundtrack" for movement exploration activities. Pairing movement exploration activities with these selections will enable students to increasingly develop their artful sensitivity of the expressive qualities of music and will gradually teach children how they can use their bodies to demonstrate how music "moves" them.

What better way to discover how music can move you than to move with the music!
