Musical movement for preschool children (from 3 to 5 years and from 5 to 6 years)

The fundamental nature and meaning of music

they are neither in objects nor in

musical works but in the act itself, in it

that people do. We can hope

that we will understand the nature of music and the

function it performs in human life

only if we understand what people do

when they participate in a musical act.

Music kinetics is an “open” method of music pedagogy that aims to develop and build children’s personality, encouraging initiative, imagination and creativity. The above elements work through the collective experience. Through the team. There, improvisation is what unlocks creation, the development of personal style and aesthetics, there initiative meets responsible action and imagination, through the group and finally, through this game of musical movement, the children manage to develop social skills, sensitivities and reflexes.

Rhythm is the foundation of music dynamics. Carl Orff, who introduced musical kinetics as a music pedagogic method, characteristically states: “It is difficult to teach rhythm. Rhythm can only be set free. Rhythm is not something abstract, it is life itself. Rhythm acts and affects , is the force that unites language, music and movement.”
