This book provides an introduction to Peter’s convition of the power of music as essential to the development of well-rounded, balanced human beings. It is an exact yet sensitive study of the phenomena of rests and repetition in music.
For musicians and eurythmists, the import of the ‘rest’, the absence of sound, and its position between and relationships to the sounds before and after is fundamental. So, too, is the effect of repetition. For parents and teachers, Peter’s shows how theses phenemena are more generally applicable in educaiton and life.
