Abstract

In the last decades, many studies point to music as a fully collaborative activity, and, therefore, the advantages of cooperative learning in music teaching. This paper presents "Oidos a Pares" (Hears in Pairs), an innovation educational project based on cooperative learning aimed at improving competences in intonation and aural perception in violin and viola students. The innovation consists in the use of reciprocal peer tutoring, pairs of students with an asymmetric relationship in terms of level of competence, who learn by teaching each other, based on a common and shared objective. All this is done through a framework of interaction structured by the teacher and a specific didactic material. For this, an experience has been designed and implemented with 10 students of violin and viola from grade 6 and 7, which is reported here. The article highlights the potential of peer tutoring in music education, points out specific elements to be considered to make the most of this strategy, and shows an example of the experience carried out. Findings reveal that this project turned out to be a successful and positive experience. Proving that these methods, despite being underexplored in instrumental teaching, can provide valuable options in music education.
