FIRST STEPS WITH MUSIC – 0 TO 3

The music courses are based on Music Learning Theory by Edwin E. Gordon. They have been designed to enrich the expressive, cognitive and psychomotor skills of children using music. The courses develop listening skills, body coordination, vocal development and the skills needed to interact in a group. Music offers infinite possibilities to complement the DEVELOPMENT OF CHILDREN, bringing into play their innate potential for creating personal relationships. They create these first with their parents, then with their teacher and finally with their classmates whilst in a playful and fun environment. The first three years of life offer an extraordinary window into learning opportunities and unrepeatable stages of cognitive development and musical aptitude in a child. In this age range, it is possible to start a journey of musical learning built according to an informal method based on Music Learning Theory by E.E. Gordon.

In the session, participants are guided to experience music through their body, movement and voice. The teacher offers a weekly group meeting lasting around 30-45 minutes, in which they explore melodic songs and rhythms, which follow the principle of variety, brevity and repetition. During the lesson, the children are left free to move around and are acknowledged when they make their own spontaneous musical responses. There is an overall atmosphere of freedom, relaxation and lots of fun. The accompanying adult (present at all the lessons) will have the opportunity to learn musical activities and over time can build an important repertoire of play to relive at home with the child.

“I absolutely recommend Tiziana as a music teacher. She is very competent and passionate: kids simply love her. Both my children attended her lessons according to Gordon Theory since they were about 15 months old. They absorbed music in a funny way and in a cosy place. Not to mention that being a working mum, the time spent singing and dancing with my children during Tiziana’s lessons was precious. My son is now 7 years old and plays proficiently violin, while my daughter, 5 years old, expresses her great musicality in ballet class. They both genuinely enjoy music and everything related thereto. Thumbs up Tiziana!”

— Chiara, Cecilia and Filippo’s mum
