Educación Musicosocial

Musicosocial education

Advantages of musicosocial education
Culture in general and music in particular can be tools of change for a better society. The musicosocial education focuses on improving the capacities of the citizens to whom it is directed contrary to the traditional music education (and no less valid) whose objective is the technical improvement of the students.

These teachings are aimed at groups with different capacities in a complementary field to the compulsory education and its application is carried out in areas where poverty, social exclusion or with difficulty in accessing culture are palpable.

Social development
It has been observed that children and young people who enjoy music in this sense, improve their social and emotional development when playing with other musicians.

On the other hand, in individual practice, it is observed that students improve visual and muscular memory, hearing, psychomotor skills as well as other abilities that will help them in a more global way in their daily life, such as; the assessment of effort, responsibility towards work, self-confidence, ability to overcome or ability to adapt to new situations.

Classes in musicosocial education are usually group classes in order to enhance these capacities, although values ​​such as empathy, solidarity, friendship, honesty or tolerance are also very important.

Where can I target my child?
To access these teachings there are many associations or specialized schools throughout the country, although we especially recommend the one developed by the Organigrama School, EM3 musical education or Musical Smiles centers.

Tips on buying a pre-owned piano

Buying a Pre-Owned Piano

Perhaps choosing a new piano is easier however… what do you have to take into account when choosing a used grand piano or vertical piano? This is an important decision and you maybe anxious about making a mistake.  Purchasing a pre-owned piano certainly requires having some ideas and a little knowledge when making your purchase. But you do not need to be an expert. Here are some tips to keep in mind when buying a pre-owned piano

Use your Senses

Hearing: Listen to the piano you want to buy, whether it’s a pre-owned piano or a new piano.  How? You must listen to the entire register of notes with all the nuances.  You should play the 88 notes and if you notice any imbalances then it is a bad sign.

Does the piano have the sound that you like? Is it sweet and melodic or does it contain a more shrill sound?  What sound do you like the most? Keep in mind that the resounding pianos in Europe; Bösendorfer, Steinway, Petrof or Schimmel, are more melodious sounds, then those pianos from Japan such as Yamaha or Kawai which have a more strident sound.

Sense of Sight

All pianos are very similar on the outside. However what is most important is what is going on the inside.  Notice the colour of the wood and see if there is any deteriorating dirt particles in the small pieces. Do the hammer felts have the mark of the strings? Are these marks deep into the felt?

Experiencing the touch

The action and touch response of a piano is one of the most important aspects in choosing a piano.  The Keyboard alone reveals for analysis if it is balanced and homogeneous.

Sense of Smell: Even a simple sniff whilst opening the lid of the piano will help you discern as to a general condition of the piano.

Sense of Taste

Test your piano. The piano that you choose should be the piano that you like the most. Look for that feeling of falling in love with your piano and that you are comfortable with the immediate reaction you get when playing it.
