Audition as an integral and fundamental music is essential to complete training and total musical development of the child. The ear training is one of the primary objectives of the process of music composition. Singing, playing an instrument, moving to music and developing creativity are among others, various forms to educate the ear. Clearly the importance of listening to music 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.

With this paper we want to present a series of teaching resources to work the music of the Romantic Era 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 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.
