How to adapt the child in the world of sounds?
aged approximately till 5 years each person intensively masters those intonational elements and LVL models which developed in the ancient time - at the earliest stages of development of our civilization - and at all times make a basis of musical thinking. At the same time the child for only a few months repeats all way on which the mankind passed in millennia in the individual development. Stages of this way following...
The first stage - a domuzykalny stage of operating by sounds. The child it is casual in the beginning, and then intentionally and consciously makes noise by means of a voice and any improvised objects (rattling, jingling, ringing). For simplification of such zvukoeksperimentatorstvo long since there are special devices - children`s rattles. It is wrong to think that operating by sounds - a task simple. In the ancient time domuzykalny development of sounds was business not children`s, and on it not one century left.
Strangely enough, but this fundamentally important stage of musical development of the child does not demand any special efforts from adults. Even absolutely natural practical question which sets parents, - what rattles to choose for purchase to the child, - it is not essential. The child will adapt any firm objects what will only fall of him into hands for this purpose, and, colliding them, will study all possible sound effects - consequences of such manipulations. Buying refined rattles of various forms and designs, we, in essence, will add nothing for musical development of children. A prize only that spoons, pans, a father`s electronic clock and the other stock which is well sounding at blows about a floor it will not be used by the child while it in hands has rattles.
For parents a rattle - some kind of “joker“: you substitute for it any thing which you do not want to see broken. Choosing rattles, it is possible not to care for their sound parameters (any are good) but only about sanitarno - hygienic if the rattle will visit a mouth (and it will occur surely and then material should not allocate any chemical poison) or will break (material has to be such that peaked splinters were not formed).
With musically - the pedagogical party there is at this stage the only caution, mainly, for rich parents: temporarily refrain from purchase of an electronic synthesizer (electromusical instrument). Such toy, very good in itself, allows to cause pressing of buttons sounds of any timbre, including to imitate sounding of blows of a subject about a subject. But ahead of time having acquainted the child with the synthesizer keyboard, we will break process of formation in his thinking of communications between sounds and the physical movements generating them. (It is even worse, than to give to the child the calculator earlier, than he learned to put numbers mentally. The calculator, of course, will make everything quickly and correctly, but the corresponding ability of mind will remain untrained. Then you will not make up for it any more.)
The second stage - giving to sounds of a rhythmic regularity, that is orderliness in time. From this point the spontaneous zvukoeksperimentatorstvo becomes playing music , that is intended sound impact on itself and on other people. It begins ability to regulate personal and others` emotional experiences and to cultivate emotional experience of the personality which, according to Guram Asatiani, is saved up as “rainfall of experiences“.
At third stage the child practices repeatedly repeated rhythmical chant of separate words and phrases monotonously, later - on elementary simple popevka from two - three notes. Over time it leads to development of more extended verbally - musical compositions like children`s counting rhymes. It is not about an aimless entertainment, and about development of the major musical reception “îñòèíàòî“ on which the ancient equipment of spells is based, plots, later - prayers, formulas of hypnotic suggestion, etc. to
as the Most important sign of productivity of musical development on it and other early stages can serve ability and desire of the child to repeatedly repeat the found ritmointonation once, that is again with pleasure to endure experienced once. Practical development of ostinatny frequency - a significant boundary on the way of spiritual growth as it is the first experience of pleasure non-material (the pleasure should study too!) .
At all listed development stages the juvenile experimenter, without suspecting that, uses the principle on which the most ancient playing music was based, - syncretism (set of the word, a melody and gesture, that is an initial neraschlenennost of art on types). Therefore at early age singing always happens together with pronouncing words and to rhythmical gestures. Knowing it, does not follow to try to obtain from the child separately singing (a pure intoning of a melody) or separately game on the tool earlier, than he will master syncretic “stikhopesneplyaska“.
What task of adults during this period? Apparently, and without their intervention the child intuitively finds the correct way of musical development and with inevitability itself passes from one stage of development of music to another. When natural avtomatizm work, it is possible not to worry about results.
But so was earlier: process went automatically until patriarchal tenor of life began to collapse. And now adults should interfere with this process, but about it is in the following article.
