This can be put into practice in several ways:

From the use of letters in the interpretation of the text, in the realization of music workshops and instruments with the students.

These are ways to sharpen sensitivity, instigate creativity and increase the integration of students in the school environment.

Music at school: interaction through the senses.
One of the main aspects that music represents in the teaching-learning process is the stimulation of the use of the senses by the student. Any musical experience, regardless of the style and instruments used, promotes greater observation, location, comprehension, description and representation skills in the person who plays and who plays an instrument.

As far as musical creation is concerned, the use of different instruments in the classroom can reveal unknown skills, increase interaction with objects and know-how, among other important skills in this phase of pedagogical development.

For the student, these skills will be applied not only in the development of one's musical aptitudes in the future but also in the learning of other disciplines. The student with the ear trained to observe and grasp can also be a good reader and text interpreter.

Analysis and interpretation of musical letters
For speaking and interpreting texts, this is another advantage of the use of music in the school day today. Depending on the quality of the works worked, whether, in any foreign language, a wide field of action is opened for teachers, new concepts and vocabulary, metaphors, among other things.

Thus, the music ends up becoming a source of important content to be used in the classroom. It is the beginning of important conversations, about politics, education, culture, gender, interpersonal relationships, ecology and several other topics that come to be addressed by musical works. It is up to the teacher to analyze the most appropriate songs and with the greatest learning potential for their students.

The contextual study of composers and interpreters
Parallel to the study of musical texts and figures, it is also possible that artists, bands, genres, and even letters are subject of study for disciplines such as Geography and History. In the end, all music also reveals a social and temporal context in which it is inserted: social movements, regional culture, folklore, a biography of its composers and performers, etc.

These are also essential characteristics for musical study, which adds a new dimension to learning. If used properly, music can lead to important discussions in the classroom, revealing new connections between ideas, disciplines, and subjects of study.

Figures and mathematical reasoning
Many studies relate the development of music skills to mathematical reasoning. This happens because the systematics of the figures and scores used in the composition are true mathematical equations: repetitions, patterns, triads, scales, dichotomies, coherence and appropriateness of tone.


For the learning of mathematics, there are several benefits of this type of musical learning.

The familiarity with predefined structures of style and logical construction of meaning contribute to the learning also of formulas, truism, and other logical reasoning.

Music at school and integration among students
 

Another benefit of music at school is the establishment of more opportunities for interaction and cooperation among students. On the one hand, there is cooperation in musical production to perform musical works as a whole, contributing to common results. On the other hand, the forms of interaction between students are multiplied, which can identify common tastes, form interest groups and disinhibit more timid students.
