Music Moves for Piano is a new piano method for the 21st century that builds on Orff, Kodaly, Suzuki, and Dalcroze and applies Edwin E. Gordon's Music Learning Theory to the teaching of piano. Music Learning Theory is the same as Gordon's 'theories of audiation' and is a sequential learning process that guides students to hear and perform music with understanding. The music learning process, similar to the language learning model, is: 1) listen 2) speak; perform; acquire a rhythm and tonal music vocabulary by singing, chanting, and moving 3) think, improvise, audiate 4) read 5) write.
This piano method can be used for beginning and transfer students of all ages and levels. The purpose of Music Moves for Piano is to help students learn how to audiate and how to play the piano. This method provides a solid foundation for developing complete music literacy.
