“Less talk is one of my favorite teaching tools, still I often must remind myself to use it”.
When I leave my words at rest, it often seems that attention and communication grows. I feel that communication without words sometimes creates more space for music. What happens in a group class (or in an individual lesson) when we don’t use words and express ourselves only with eyes, hands, sound, music? How does it affect the students in how they interact with me and with each other? I would like to share with you some of my thoughts and reflections about this lovely subject and perhaps give a few examples of how I use it.
