The Report published in 1973 stated that: 'Musical sensitivity and love of music should be fostered from earliest childhood. Children's comprehensive development requires a harmonious balance between their different physical and intellectual faculties.
We aim to awaken children's love of and feeling for music, with the possible later option of music literacy and training, seeking always to ensure that they enjoy music as a source of pleasure in itself and as a tool for exploring other areas.
- Discovering sound environments and territories
- Playing 'what can I hear?'
- Listening to all sorts of music, both classical and modern
- Inventing sound sequences, which we read and write
- With USOs (unidentified sound objects)
- With IFs (instrument families)

- With sound photographs: recordings
- With BASCHET instruments (sound toys and sculptures)
