SUPERSONIC, sound pedagogy

"SUPERSONIC, SOUND PEDAGOGY" is an inductive method for accessible and inclusive musical practices, with an intuitive educational instrumentarium made of melodic percussions. It encourages accessibility to sound expression for all, according to each person's abilities.

An educational principle: a non-stereotyped opening to the world of sound through wonder, curiosity, creativity, learning, knowledge and conceptualization.


The book "SUPERSONIC" Introductory principles of sound pedagogy

The book "SUPERSONIC", Introductory principles of sound pedagogy" (Lugdivine Edition 2020), preface by the composer Bruno Giner) presents 250 tracks of individual and collective sound games, from awakening to interpretation, through sound and musical creation. It encourages awareness of the world of sound and of others, and the development of a "musician's behavior" based on listening and attention placed at the service of musical creation.

The group activity generates deviations from the frameworks of the games (250) experienced and opens up all the more doors to sound: creation of soundscapes, rhythmic or melodic work, coding, object or sculptural scores, improvisations, etc. from the discovery of the world of sound, its exploration and towards sound and then musical creation.
