@LindsayMorelli well, what are we connecting with? Joy, sadness, exhilaration, peace, anger, mystery… that sounds like people! #musedchat

Ss connecting w/ the music is the middle step toward them connecting emotionally w/ the audience through the music. #musedchat

A Bach chorale, with or without words creates a connection for me personally. We need to share our conn. w/ our students, too #musedchat

Even without a “story” or specific narrative inspiration, music affects us. New World Sym. is one I respond to, just the music. #musedchat

Music affects us on an emotional level. That is its power. Students, generally being human, project their emotional exp. into it. #musedchat

Sorry, had kid melt down on HW. Not sure if it was said, but Rep. choice for connection: Choose good music! #musedchat

@rhodabernard Absolutely! I do it all the time. Helps with phrasing, expression, style… #musedchat

Connecting with the music: Internalizing it on multiple levels so that you are not simply a technician, but an artist. #musedchat

RT @brandtschneider: has anyone defined “connection”? Good point. Anyone? #musedchat

@thomasjwest Yes - nuts & bolts are needed. But getting to know the music through listening & study can be done simultaneously. #musedchat

@rhodabernard that can be a good technique. I’ll guide students through a narrative or have them create one. Helps sound unity #musedchat

@padgets Hello Sharon! Connecting kids with the music they are playing. #musedchat

via TweetGrid.com in reply to padgets

you can also look at the music stylistically, through it’s large and small scale form, and it’s influence on later rep. #musedchat

@LindsayMorelli w/ band/orch rep. you still have historical/cultural context, biographical info on composer… #musedchat

I’m not sure if I like the way the topic is worded. I think the task is to connect Ss w/ the music & they’ll see it’s importance #musedchat
