The Argentine musician Pablo Nahual will offer on Tuesday, February 11 in the Assembly Hall of the City of Santomera, and on Thursday, February 13 at the Cultural Center of Puerto Lumbreras a series of inclusive educational concerts framed in the educational project "The Origin of the Instruments ", which local schoolchildren will enjoy.
The scheduled time for the functions will be at 10:00 and 11:30 Hrs.
This concert has been selected within the Cycle for Schoolchildren of the Palau de la Música in Valencia for two consecutive seasons, while in 2019 it has received the GAES Award for the inclusive musical project for its musical project "Educational concerts for deaf children".
Also, the musician has scheduled a series of educational concerts in several locations in the region of Murcia during the month of February 2020.
Through ethnic instruments brought from indigenous communities, already considered museum pieces because of the difficulty of finding them today, students know and listen to the sonority of the instruments of prehistoric man, thus understanding the origin of current instruments and the universality of artistic expression at any time in the history of Humanity.
Taking children to music concerts is a commitment to quality education.
The artistic experience recalls in students the taste for creativity, harmonic expression and imagination.
Pablo Nahual is an Argentine musician, Andean folklorist.
He has been offering didactic concerts to students both in Spain and Argentina for 40 years and his pedagogical project is called "The Origin of Instruments".
Why take students to educational concerts?
Art education cultivates children's sensitivity and music in particular is appreciated even from the prenatal stage.
That students attend auditions of various musical styles, pedagogically adapted to their age, develop in them a sound record that, which books, awaken and amplify in their brain capacities ranging from mathematical understanding, linguistic development as well as creativity and the imagination.
What is the use of developing sensitivity in children?
Sensitivity is the eyes and ears of the human heart: it is the ability we all have to feel how we are emotionally, as well as being able to empathize and feel how our environment is.
This is of vital importance in adult life to establish healthy relationships and to be able to maintain a cheerful and positive attitude despite external circumstances.
Do you think that art education needs a greater presence in the education system?
Nowadays access to knowledge is immediate through the Internet.
That is why we consider it a priority to develop in the child the dimension of the heart, the place where our conscience and our humanity reside.
And artistic education is an extraordinary pedagogical tool for this.
What is an inclusive concert?
It is an optimal musical project for the integration of boys and girls with some type of disability, so that an exclusive action is not made for them but, on the contrary, they are included as one more child within a larger proposal, which integrates to all.
As we have always affirmed, music is for the human being an extraordinary communication tool.
Music is the universal language to express what is in the heart of each one of us.
It allows us to relate beyond intellectual understanding, beyond our differences and beyond all our limitations.
Because there is a place in all of us where, when a musical note sounds, the soul vibrates with it.
Our didactic concert, as well as its adaptation for the little ones "The First Instruments," contain "The Origin of the Instruments" a series of key pedagogical elements that make them a wonderful proposal for children with some type of disability.
