Abstract:

The paper proposes a new way of introducing music to classes of 8 to 10 years old pupils, by adopting a recent educational tool for teaching Computer Science. Our proposal builds in fact on computational cards (or c-cards), a playful and intuitive mind-tool, that has been applied to a variety of Computer Science concepts. Here a simple extension to c-cards is presented, that enables pupils to build and play with tangible musical machine.
