It is not known how music appeared in the history of mankind, because neither the sounds of the determined height nor their rhythmic relationships are found in nature as something specific to it, nor as a specific product of the human being. Nor can it be said that the music appeared by imitation of the song of the birds or of the howls or grunts of the mammals, although the primitive man imitated them as a means to facilitate their capture. It could be born as a need to contrast with the silence of the environment.
This, together with the recitations, could constitute the primitive origin of musical expression. It is probable that primitive man has accompanied the movements he made in his various activities or works with guttural sounds, whose rhythm adjusted to his innate internal rhythm. The progressive development of this rhythm through movement would be the beginning of the evolution of dance.
It took a long period of time for the different elements that intervene in the musical expression to be structuring and consolidating.
Musical expression is a fundamental part of the culture of all peoples. The baby, from his birth, lives the musical experience of the first songs of the cribs.
Later, many children's games are accompanied by traditional songs that allow them a special rhythm.
The school, as a transmitter of culture, should take advantage of this type of expression both for its own aesthetic value and for its didactic potential for numerous learning: learning to listen, expressing their ideas, feelings and emotions or working as a team, among others. much others.
What is generally called "having a musical ear" is not a matter of improvisation from one day to the next because the language of music is of great amplitude and complexity. Knowing it thoroughly can be quite difficult for adults if they have not been familiar with it since childhood, and that is why it is much better for the ear to begin educating at an early age.
At present, there are various didactic methodologies, very attractive and motivating, for children to learn music through games and simple exercises, while practicing this art with the constancy and repetition that their learning demands.
Normally, to acquire a basic musical culture, it is enough to learn the main rules of the musical language knowing the traditional songs of the near surroundings and the most habitual tonalities of the different cultures.
In summary, music contributes greatly to the general development of the personality and, therefore, the school is an ideal place to learn and practice it. In addition, the school can not miss the opportunity to improve the innate aptitudes that all children have for this artistic specialty.
