Cristina Faria

Resumen


Ao contrário do que se possa pensar, a aprendizagem musical pode ser efetiva mesmo quando se verificam condições limitantes ligadas ao envelhecimento. O presente trabalho pretende, para além de relatar uma experiência, já com quatro anos, de ensino musical com um grupo de 22 indivíduos com uma média de idades de 71,5 anos, mostrar que a aprendizagem musical é eficaz, resultando numa mais-valia para a compreensão e utilização da linguagem musical em projetos de enriquecimento e desenvolvimento pessoal no envelhecimento. São discutidas as estratégias utilizadas bem como os respetivos resultados, tendo por base as premissas do envelhecimento ativo.

ABSTRACT

Contrary to what one might think, learning music can be effective even in the presence of limiting conditions associated with ageing. In addition to reporting a four-year experiment of music education with a group of 22 individuals with an average age of 71.5 years, this paper intends to show that music learning is effective, resulting in added value for the understanding and use of the language of music in projects dedicated to furthering personal enrichment and development in the ageing process. The strategies used and their respective results are discussed, based on the premises of active ageing.
