Briefly introducing body music, the aim is to emphasize its applicability in general music education which misses some simple but essential fundaments of music due to lack of interaction. It is concluded that body music, music and dance created by playing with body sounds, is a fundamental play-oriented interactive learning environment and is suggested to be included in music education at all levels.
