...a powerful tool that every music teacher should employ in their classroom.
from American String Teacher review
November 2009 This vibrant and innovative DVD, CD, and guidebook set contains everything you need to inspire students of any age to move to great classical music.

This long-awaited follow-up to the first volume of Move It! contains 23 works in a wide variety of styles and is certain to appeal to early childhood specialists, elementary music teachers, and dance educators. Every movement is demonstrated on the DVD, recorded on the CD for use in class, and clearly and simply detailed in the illustrated guidebook.

The expressive movements reflect both the form and the expressive quality of the music, embodying John. M. Feierabend's theories of music and movement development and Peggy Lymnan's belief in the emotional power of gesture. Move It! 2is also perfect for use with senior citizens and the physically challenged.

Understanding the organizations of movement sequences, exploring personal and general space relating to others, and discovering inner feelings connected to beautifully expressive musical selections and movements--all of this can be achieved with Move It! 2.It's an approach that's as fun and expressive as it is educational.

    I love both of these videos/CDs. Moving musically to classical music is an important part of my preschool music classes and this is a major resource for this. My students love them too! Also, it is sometimes the "miracle minute" during which a rambunctious group of kids can calmly...

    channel their energy. If every selection was appropriate for littles, I would like it even more! (The only reason for a rating less than 5!)
