Movement That Fits: Dalcroze Eurhythmics and the SuzukiŽ Method
Comprised of singing and body movement activities which incorporate the principles of music educator Jaques Dalcroze and using the repertoire of the Suzuki MethodŽ, Movement That Fits was written by Dalcroze educator Joy Yelin who is also knowledgeable about the Suzuki MethodŽ. There is an introduction by the editor, Ken Guilmartin, director of the Center for Music and Young Children and himself a certified Dalcroze instructor. Movement That Fits consists of sequentially structured singing and movement activities presented in easy-to-read outline form. Lifelike drawings and other visual aids accompany each activity along with information about the Dalcroze approach to rhythm, movement and music reading. Suzuki MethodŽ favorites such as "Twinkle" and "Go Tell Aunt Rhody" serve as the basis for the various activities.
