This project introduces a method titled The Flutist’s MAPP (Movement Applications for Performance and Practice). The method extrapolates the pedagogical ideas of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze and incorporates them into the pedagogical process of flute specific technique. By examining Jaques-Dalcroze’s method of Eurhythmics, I argue that rhythmic education through movement, when applied to flute pedagogy, will strengthen students’ concepts, through whole body experience, of the rhythmic layers of inner pulse, fingers, breath, and articulation; time, space and energy; and ease of practice and performance.
