Resumo

This study aims to measure the impact of a multidisciplinary and multidimensional proposal on the auditory recognition of the rhythmic/metrical structure, melodic/harmonic organization, expressive elements and stylistic/instrumental diversity. Given the characteristics and the aims of the study was developed an experimental design of a control group with pre-test and post-test. Forty-two students of a higher education institution were involved in the study (n=21 experimental group and n=21 control group), their ages ranging from 18 to 49 years. The data were collected in the beginning and at the end of the implementation period (40 sessions of 30 minutes duration) through the application of the Individual Knowledge Test and the Auditory Recognition Test. The results reveal the existence of significant differences between the performance results of the experimental group and the control group regarding the auditory recognition of the rhythmic/metric structure and the melodic/harmonic organization. In the case of the remaining variables, there were no significant differences between the performance results of the experimental and control groups.
