The practice of music represents an irreplaceable experience of the human being. Gratifying in many aspects, it carries out a diversified web of experiences: sensorial, perceptive, cognitive, dynamic, social, cultural. In this, each individual comes to the progressive realization of music as an integrated and integrating experience, which is the deep meaning of culture and the ability to establish relationships. The education to artistic languages encountered in pre-school and primary school, even when it is of less relevance in the curriculum, should represent a crucial base to the learning pathway, while promoting interdisciplinarity and warranting a new plurifocal access to knowledge and to individual growth, which is capable of reinforcing also other knowledge necessary in questioning and comprehending the essential, structural, communicative, creative, imaginative and psychological aspects linked to the use of every genre of art.
