Based on Edwin Gordon’s Music Learning Theory, these sessions seek to provide rich and diverse auditory environments through varied musical examples. As music is inseparable from movement, these sessions will have a strong component in movement, so that the child “sees what he hears” and develops a better body and rhythmic awareness, experiencing the sensations of fluidity, weight and space, starting to “feel what he hears and sees”. The best way for children to learn is through play and we are going to play with music, with movement, with words, with musical instruments. The sessions are based on the Música e Movimento collection by Editora Bellaterra. The participation of the companion(s) is essential (adult(s) whom the child trusts) is essential, because he is a model for the child: the timbre of his voice is familiar because he knows his timbre even before he was born . In addition, the companion, having an active participation in the session, makes the child assume it as natural and will feel safe to follow his example, participating, strengthening affective bonds and promoting sharing with each other.

Many, many years ago it was believed that elephants did not have a trunk, they had a small nose… Elephant Blai was very curious, he asked everyone everything, until one day he asked a question that no one wanted to answer. Blai was not content with silence and went on an adventure in search of the answer he so wanted.
