Musical game introduces kids into the world of music to capture its language, have their imagination and creativity expanded, their senses and feelings deplored and new ways of expression revealed in a manner that suits them.
Music is a game of sounds which, like all other games, can be individual or collective, mental or physical.
This book hosts in its pages a collection of various music kinetic activities, derived from the writer’s long involvement in Music Education. Many of these activities are based on popular traditional games, such as blindman’s buff and music chairs; others are original ideas and some are even suggested by the children themselves. These games, suitable for younger or older kids, in smaller or bigger teams, are classified in six units, on the basis of the objectives they fulfill.
∗ Cultivation of attention, concentration and memory
∗ Development of kinetic skills
∗ Understanding of musical concepts through movement
∗ Creativity and imagination development
∗ Use of the body as a sound source
This book is addressed to anyone who feels that the acquaintance with the world of music and its language is not an entirely theoretical occupation with the various musical concepts. It is useful not only to musicians who teach children, but also to animators and educators of pre- and school-aged children. It can be particularly important to Pedagogical School students, who are introduced to the methodology and implementation of music-kinetic activities.
The book is accompanied by two music CDs with chosen pieces of music for their use in several music-kinetic activities.
