Work with Keith Terry on short Body Music activities to develop skills, focus, timing and rhythmic concepts. Mini-Lessons include Video and Notation. This first launch are lessons that already exist on Keith’s four Body Music Videos, available here a la carte. The 0.0 Mini-Lessons are foundational activities that are a good place to start, then you can sort Mini-Lessons by level, key words, and intended audience.

While all lessons are suitable for a General audience of anyone interested in the art form, we will be adding material directed specifically to Teachers who want to learn how to lead Body Music activities, and for Students to directly follow, as a contained activity. More added each month. Explore and have fun!
