"Music aesthetics" is one of the important links of music teaching in primary and secondary schools, and it is also a key form of education to enhance students' humanistic literacy under the current background of "core literacy" education. Music perception, as the psychological behavior of individual students to realize the artistic style, creative form, and emotional expression of musical works, it can also help the students improve their own aesthetic ability and develop their own artistic personality. The teacher’s teaching task is to lead the students through the correct ways to feel music, understand music, and express experience. Body rhythm method is the best teaching form to stimulate students' physical and mental participation and cultivate students' musical perception. The reasonable use of it by teachers will be able to develop music aesthetic education more efficiently and further stimulate the humanistic education value of music disciplines.
