Abstract

Elementary music teachers use a variety of movement activities in the classroom. The common thought is that movement engages a student's brain more than the contemporary lecture. In this study I explored the assistance of kinesthetics by teaching a lesson with and without movement. The group not moving will be the control group. I assessed each class with a microphone at the end of the lesson having them sing the tune by themselves. Lastly I took my recordings to an unbiased graduate student in my department and had them judge the accuracy of the recordings with a copy of the music.
