Music and Meaning

Suzuki piano

Dancing notesMovement requires both space and time punctuated by a beginning and an end. ” A properly executed rhythm requires complete mastery of movements in relation to energy, space, and time.” The child learns to feel the music, not just hear it with the ears, but sense it through the being. Aural sensations are realized through muscular sensations.

Muscles were made for movement, and rhythm is movement. It is impossible to conceive a rhythm without thinking of a body in motion.

–Emile Jacques-Dalcroze
