Featured music today used to be called “listening” music.    What music isn’t “listening” music?   Hmmm …

I remember “listening” music in school as being –that long stuff that was boring–.   Now maybe that’s because my teachers chose long pieces that gave them a break from doing anything, or maybe it’s because it was the 1960s and most of school was sit still and listen.

Now it’s called “active listening” and reminds teachers and students that listening can be active  —with the imagination,  with conducting skills, with visual arts, with movement/dance, with exploring patterns and, and, and …     Engage minds and hearts in music that allows us to roam and create and with ideas and hands.
