Abstract:Musical hearing is an important part in the process of music education of the student. If we assume that music is sound, it is obvious and unnecessary to emphasize the importance of musical hearing in the process of music education student. In addition, it can be used as a technique to encourage the development of attention, the habit of listening, observation and analysis, being an essential element in the practice of relaxation. That is why, for what one of the most important objectives of this training is the development of sensitivity, which should translate into an understanding of the great music and know how to evaluate, calibrate and understand a musical composition with an authentic and critical thinking. Under the term "hearing" closely related "hearing education" is defined one of the most characteristic and important musical education, since from it are causing most of the activities and music content.
With this work we want to present a series of teaching resources to work the elements of music through the hearing. 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 interdisciplinary 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.
