Music Across the Senses

Jody L. Kerchner

Oxford University Press

This chapter highlights the multisensory pedagogical tools presented in earlier chapters-mapping, moving, and verbally describing-but applies them to teaching and learning in school choirs, bands, orchestras, and other types of performance-based classes. Here are ways of nurturing student musicians to broaden their understanding of musical intersections-of musical knowledge, affective sensitivity, technique, imagination, and musical craft-so to help them improve their performances. The relationship between traditional music curricula and comprehensive music curricular is also presented. Ideally, all school music offerings facilitate the development of a variety of student musical behaviors, including music listening, while maintaining the unique focus of each class. Specific kinesthetic and visual metaphors (via verbal description) for use in music performance settings are described, demonstrating the possibilities for developing performance skills at the individual and ensemble level.

Keywords:   Performance, ensemble, instrument, voice, rehearsal, music listening, music listening map, movement, metaphor, curriculum, comprehensive musicianship, kinesthetic
