FOR MUSIC THERAPISTS
"Creative Motion can revitalize your practice, bring a new awareness to your work, and help your clients make uniquely meaningful connections with you, the music, and the rest of their lives" -Kelly Robertson, MT-BC
Working with Creative Motion gives therapists the ability to focus musical experiences to different levels - physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Participants frequently voice how Creative Motion work helps them not only in their musical performance, but also in gaining a new perspective on issues involving personal development.
Martha Russell, founder of Creative Motion teaching, worked with Emile Jaques-Dalcroze. This work began her development of a pedagogy for using movement to build musical awareness.
