Early American Folk Song and Movement
Dr. Pattye Casarow
Designed for teachers of any subject, elementary through high school. Step back in time to the 19th century when close knit communities enjoyed live music and friends getting together for fun and fellowship. The folk song and movement art form can be used in the music classroom to learn basic steps and moves that demonstrate an understanding of musical form and steady pulse. It can also be used in any classroom to provide a change of pace in the lesson, physical activity for a rainy day, growth in social interaction skills, or simply a reward for academic success. Your students will enjoy the mental and physical challenges as well as the fun that ensues.
