WHAT IS IT?
The Musical Auditory Training (T.A.M.) was created to support people with central auditory skills deficit based on auditory training exercises of figure-ground with musical instruments, frequency and duration, directed listening, rhythm, auditory closure and memory. It was based in the Ph.D. dissertation of Dr. Katya Freire, named Treinamento Auditivo Musical: Uma Proposta Para Idosos Usuários De Próteses Auditivas (Musical Auditory Training: A proposal for elderly users of hearing aids), presented to UNIFESP - Universidade Federal de Sao Paulo in 2009. This work gave rise to the first edition of the material, comprising 7 DVDs, which was sold out in one year. In addition, the author received the Award Excellence in Speech and Hearing Pathology, in 2009. This is the second edition, presenting numerous improvements: new songs, new musical arrangements, modern design, more didactic approach and new exercises with greater challenges, for those that want to train their brain to listen better.
