A Groundbreaking System
Back in the mid 1980’s Don Caron was working with choreographer /teacher/composer, Elizabeth Carlssohn, at Eastern Washington University (EWU). The two of them were responsible for teaching the ballet classes at the university (Elizabeth taught, Don accompanied on the piano). Their inquisitive natures led them to experiment with beat placement, phrasing and other musical nuances to see if it made a difference in how well the students performed the various ballet class exercises. The results of their experiments with Ballet Class-Music were truly astonishing and nothing short of groundbreaking!
The Creation of The First Class Albums – ballet class music
From what they learned, they developed a method of creating music for ballet class which is now known as The Motosonus Method™. They applied this method to the creation of music and training videos for ballet teachers. The ultimate result was The First Class Albums – Music for Ballet Class, and The First Class Videos – Ballet instructional DVDs.
