Based on Edwin Gordon’s Musical Learning Theory, these sessions seek to provide rich and diverse listening environments, through varied musical examples. As music is inseparable from movement, this session will have a strong component in movement, meaning that the child “sees what they hear” and develops better body and rhythmic awareness, experiencing 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 will use stories, music, movement and musical instruments so that children can experience play.

The participation of the companion(s) is essential (adult(s) whom the child trusts) is essential, because they are a model for the child: the timbre of their voice is familiar as they know its timbre even before they are born . Furthermore, by having an active participation in the session, the companion makes the child accept it as natural and will feel safe to follow their example, participating, strengthening emotional bonds and promoting sharing with each other.

Pokko and the Drum
Pokko was a frog who lived with her parents in a beautiful and peaceful mushroom. Making noise and creating havoc was her specialty. His parents, wanting some peace, gave him a drum. And that’s where it all started!… The expected peace has arrived! Did it arrive?… Or did it take a while?… Or did it not even arrive?… Come and find out what happened!
