Abstract: In a world in which a large amount of ICT game-based systems deal with the musical abilities without really supporting a high level of musical education, CrazySquare, initially implemented as educational instrument supporting the study of rhythm and its representation, currently represents a valid high level of musical education system for teachers who want to involve their students in learning guitar in a professional way, i.e., to be able to play what they hear in their brains (the audiation). CrazySquare has been inspired by the Gordon’s theory, which consists of using a more direct approach to sound instead of the musical notation alone (e.g., solfeggio). It is specifically indicated for young teenagers (10 - 13 years old) that approach music and a musical instrument at the same time and for the first time. It has been formalized after ten years of positive results, obtained using the paper-based CrazySquare procedure adopted in Italian middle schools that introduced gamified elem ents for the audiation. The reported expert-based evaluation, indeed, encourage us to go ahead in the taken direction. (More)
