BODY MUSIC Workshops: Methodology with Keith Terry
Considered a pioneer in contemporary Body Music, Keith Terry, the founder of the International Body Music Festival, has developed a methodology for exploring patterns of music and rhythm on the body.
Using the oldest instrument on the planet — the human body — we’ll clap, slap, snap, step and vocalize our way through some very fun and funky, original and traditional rhythmic music. BODY MUSIC is an effective way of internalizing rhythmic work, which enhances the development of time, timing, phrasing, listening skills, independence, coordination and ensemble awareness.
We will identify cultural and historical connections while exploring a variety of rhythmic systems and concepts from around the world, including polyrhythms, crosspulses, polymeters, phasing, half time/double time, and more. It is a useful tool for anyone interested in deepening their rhythmic skills.
