General musical comprehension is worked on in a practical way. All musicians, regardless of the main instrument they master, must be able to defend themselves at the piano accompaniment level, since the keyboard offers a very clear vision of how the voices work at the harmonic level.
As a complement to music computing and new technologies, it becomes an exceptional ally of the student. It is a subject that, without the need to delve into advanced piano techniques, allows you to easily enjoy music and, most importantly, understand it.
Esta asignatura tiene por objetivo trabajar la comprensión musical, siempre necesaria, desde diferentes perspectivas ajenas al instrumento principal. Y es que el cerebro se acostumbra fácilmente al esquema visual del instrumento principal y profundiza en posiciones geométricas propias de la técnica específica física, y de esta manera dejamos de pensar en relaciones gravitatorias entre las notas musicales.
Por lo tanto, en esta asignatura se sustituye la comodidad visual esquemática habitual a la que el estudiante está acostumbrado por una totalmente diferente. Con esto se consigue que el cerebro trabaje no por posiciones visuales sino por relaciones musicales. Una vez el estudiante ha comprendido estas relaciones, cuando vuelve al instrumento principal no sólo continúa reconociendo los esquemas originales, sino que es capaz de entender las relaciones musicales de manera global, e incluso incorporar aspectos musicales de la instrumento secundario, que hacen el principal más rico y original.
Se aconseja que los alumnos de cuerda estudien un instrumento de viento y que los alumnos de viento en toquen uno de cuerda. Uno de armónico para los más melódicos, y uno melódico para los más armónicos.
