I like the idea "put the beat in your feet" while clapping the rhythm. This is developing coordination and fine motor skills. I like the idea of the connection between mood and music.

I think this was an interesting approach. I wonder how long her classes are? Also, how long did she prep concepts such as dynamic, style, and tempo before she taught this lesson? At what point in the school year is this? What grade is this? If I had to guess, I would say first, but I wish I knew for certain. Other than that, it seems like a nice idea.
