Amusiking accompanies young children and their families on a journey of music discovery through all the senses. So let me tell you how my own life-long journey into music started, as, of that journey I clearly remember the first steps. I first experienced music many years ago, I was about 6 years old, I sat at the piano, on my brother’s lap, my fingers gently guided as he played his favourite tunes. Our first experience of something very often affects the way we will progress through that discipline. My own experience was a positive one, that led me to study further, towards a piano performance diploma at the conservatoire of Venice, where I come from. The path then took many unexpected turns, I became a piano teacher, a musicology graduate who undertook the academic path, I even worked as a music librarian at the Royal College of Music, a very unexpected turn that was…until the road turned again and I became a parent. Unexpectedly, I had somehow to revisit my own first steps into music, alongside my young children. I wanted to make music with them very early but I didn’t know how to. Luckily at the time I lived in London, where there’s a whole array of choice of activities for very young children. But rather than just observe, as a trained musician I felt I had to understand first how it was done…that brought me to the world of early years music education. That was back in 2008. Since then, I have been avidly reading all the research and the literature I could find on the subject. I discovered that we can, and we should, expose human beings of any age to regular, good quality music activities to nurture the skills they already come equipped with, from birth and even before! I soon realised that I had discovered an entire new world and soon after I felt I had to update my knowledge. This is how I discovered the work of Émile Jaques-Dalcroze, Swiss musician and pedagogue, who believed that music study should start from the body, our first and most powerful musical instrument. The method convinced me so much that I became a Dalcroze Eurhythmics student with Dalcroze UK, and obtained the Professional Certificate. And so I took my first steps into what became Amusiking: a project to guide families, young children, adults … on their journey into music experience and appreciation, through the use of the body. Music is first and foremost a performing art, how often we forget this! By bringing the body back into the equation we make the experience more meaningful, its beneficial effects longer lasting. If you, like me, are up for the challenge, come and join Amusiking: it’ll be Amusik adventure!
