‘Pa Ni be: I Hear, I See’  is based on the research: Do Re Mi For Little Kids, in which Raquel Lopez explores ways of music teaching and learning departing from sound experiences themselves. Enjoy music making with Pa Ni be: I Hear, I See!

About Raquel’s Research


A snap shot about her research:

Do Re Mi for Little Kids or The Quest for an Aural Approach to Absolute Do

How should music be taught and learned, and what should be taught first? Should the staff be introduced from the first music class or should music learning begin by ear? In most practices notation is introduced from the very first lesson. But, should this be the case?

Raquel Lopez discusses the subject in light of her recent research in the field of music education.  In this discussion, the importance of teaching sound first and symbol second takes a prominent place. To know more about Raquel’s research send an e-mail to: panibemusic@gmail.com
