If we assume that music is sound, it is obvious and unnecessary to pretend to demonstrate the importance of musical hearing in the process of music education student. Furthermore, it can be used as a technique to encourage the development of attention, the habit of listening, observation, analysis and development of sensitivity, and is an indispensable element in the practice of relaxation. Musical hearing is an important part in the process of musical education of the student.

With this work we want to present a series of teaching resources to work the music of the Renaissance through the hearing with music students at the university teaching. The procedures used in this approach to teaching, inductive and deductive, but basically active, make us raise the hearing from different aspects: the musical analysis through diagrams, and tables of music; musical technique, defined as rhythmic and melodic exercises, reading, musical performance, etc. involving a specific domain learning and interdisciplinarity with other seemingly unrelated areas of music, but intrinsically linked: artistic expression, language and Spanish literature and history. So, through all the auditions teacher in this proposal, we aim to: promote the habit of active listening, sensory and effectively raise awareness, assess hearing enjoy musical works individually and collectively, to educate inner listening ability , value silence as an essential element for capturing musical and finally expressive contrast between sound and silence.

It aims to offer a development proposal for that walk in the teaching-learning process since it is proposed and is an organized plan of action from which the activities, learning objectives, processes and strategies have meaning and coherence.
