Teaching Body Mapping to Children: Overcoming and Preventing Injury in the Music Studio and Classroom.

Jennifer Johnson has drawn on her vast experience as a Body Mapping Educator, musician, and teacher to bring us an invaluable resource.  Her explanations of Body Mapping and what it means to ‘mis-map’ bring new insights to anyone who is teaching a musical instrument to children.  This comprehensive book covers every area of the body.  Each chapter is filled with useful ‘precursor red flags’ for typical misuse of patterns and provides wonderful explanations and activities to help children bring new awareness to their body.  Through awareness, old habitual patterns are released, allowing for the freedom and balance necessary for a lifetime of pain-free playing.  This book should be required reading for everyone in the music teaching profession.“Edward Kreitman, Suzuki Association of the Americas Registered Teacher Trainer
