From theory ... to the classroom What do language and music have in common? - How can speech have a positive effect on the music lesson and help the development of the child's abilities? - "Ah be blom"! Why are traditional children's songs and games an inexhaustible source of material for teaching all musical concepts? - From vocal experimentation to musical editing of literary texts: examples of the use of the voice. The book is not so much about the song as it is about the spoken word: vocal sounds, everyday words, proverbs, opinions, children's songs and rhymes, long or short texts, are used to develop rhythmic sense, creativity, motor coordination, vocal skills and melodic sense. It is no coincidence that great figures in music education, such as Carl Orff and Zoltan Kodaly, have embraced the view that reason is the most natural way for a child to approach music. The book is divided into two distinct parts, the first part comes to support on a theoretical level the relationship between language and music. The second part presents practical examples of language use in the classroom, suggesting some ways of editing. The suggested activities are aimed at kindergarten and elementary school children and the teacher can choose activities with different degrees of difficulty.
