This dissertation applies Body Mapping principles and their application to the discovery of how physiological movement is interrelated with sensory awareness. The whole purpose of this dissertation is to demonstrate how essential it is to pursue physiologically based music-making. To this end, it provides essential points about sitting-balance, presents anatomical information about the whole arm, as well as summarizes Body Mapping and, finally, evaluates the four most-practiced piano techniques of students ages six to twenty-eight. Advisors/Committee Members: McCabe, Robin L (advisor).
