How is "moving to music" a "nonsense curricula"?

It was good enough for Orff, and elementary music teachers teach in that style all over the place.

Did you just enter into evidence, that the academic acceptance of "nonsense curricula" is proof that "nonsense curricula" does not exist??

I was thinking Super Glue for the fingers and Gorilla Tape on the mouth might help keep things in place while you move to the music.

Moving to music has it's time and place, and there are times not to move. If I went to an orchestra or concert band concert and saw the tubist swaying back and forth it would be distracting to me, if I'm watching a Marching band and the Sousaphones are moving together in choreographed moves that's adds to the show. Remember the big joke about Jerry Garcia "I went to a Dead Concert, and Jerry Moved"? It was unusual in a Rock band setting for someone not to move, and when a performer didn't it was considered a joke. It's really all situational, and what the expectations are for that situation.

...things taken to extremes.
A friend of mine had a horn student who played quite well, but who had some accuracy problems.
After a few months of that, the teacher grasped the student's head (while they were playing in a lesson) and held it still.
It was then made immediately apparent to the student what the cause of the problem had been, the accuracy problems disappeared, and (truth) the student auditioned-for-and-accepted a principal position in a full-time orchestra, and then another principal position in a major full-time orchestra.

I never understood the idea that one must physically "emote." I never studied with anyone who encouraged that, I never played with anybody who ever encourage that, and I really don't know anyone except for a couple of violinists who even do it (aside from some rank amateurs). In fact, everyone I've ever studied or played with has discouraged it highly. The mind should be on fire, but the body should be cold as ice. Entertainment value and nonsensical BS curricula notwithstanding, of course.

I play a different type of music than most of y’all.
Audience members are generally there to dance. In that setting, if it looks like we’re having a good time on stage, that helps the audience have a good time.
Since I’m standing up anyway (I’m a sousaphonist), might as well dance!

I certainly do not equate "emoting" with "entertaining." Very different, methinks... :mrgreen: :tuba:
