Today in Kindermusik I taught the children about steady beats by tapping our thighs and chanting, “Show me please, how you tap the beat, beat, beat, beat, show me please, how you tap the beat, beat, beat, beat”. Then we moved on to…..”tap your toes, toes, toes, toes….tap your knees….tap your hair….” and finally ending with, “Show me please, how you tap the air, air, air, air.” As we tapped the air, our voices were very quiet. I asked, “Can you feel the air?” We closed our eyes and thought about what the air might feel like. “Heavy, fluffy, warm, damp, and still” were some responses. I am not always aware of the air. If I pay attention to it more, I wonder what it would tell me.
