Francesca Tidoni

I am a young sound resercher and I work with 0 to 10 year old babies and children, as a professional woman, collaborating with institutions, schools, and music associations.

As music educator I am interested in sonic gesture and actions, in the innumerable ways of producing sounds, in sensory perception of sounds and music, in sound imagination, in composition with everyday sounds ( digitally recorded and manipulated) and everyday objects ( office, kitchen, hydraulic objects and so on).

The focuses of this icad workshop are exploration, interaction, everyday contexts: I think that children need someone who consciously accompanies them in their natural sound explorations, someone who creates rich and effective sound contexts, someone who is interested in their general development but also in contemporary music research: I believe in the deep links that are between contemporary art and childhood culture.

I live and work in Bologna, where I took the Communication Sciences degree in 2003.
I have collected 443 hours extra of specific and certified courses about music education (Scuola Popolare di Musica Donna Olimpia Roma, SIMEOS Verona, SIEM Lerici, Centro Studi Musicali Maurizio de Bendetto Lecco, Efeso Bologna) with good teachers like Beth Bolton ( Temple University, Pennsylvania, USA) and François Delalande.
I have also a certified course in Sound Design of 30 hours.
I have studied classical piano in my childhood and jazz piano and improvvisation for 4 years with Fabrizio Puglisi and Tristan Honsinger. I have also studied south american percussions, guitar, voice. I am a member of “Arcanto” choir.

As music educator I have collaborated in Bologna with:
Festivals: “La città dello Zecchino 2007” and Angelica Festival, Bologna, “Take The CageTrain”: HYPERLINK “”
Libraries and Museums: Museo e Biblioteca Internazionale della Musica, Bologna, Biblioteca Tassinari Clò di Villa Spada Bologna, Casa della Conoscenza- Biblioteca Cesare Pavese Casalecchio di Reno.
Institutions: Comune di Casalecchio di Reno e Comune di Zola Predosa;
Public Children Schools: Scuole dell’infanzia Morandi e Don Marella, Nidi e Scuole dell’Infanzia dei Comuni di Marzabotto, Lama di Reno, Pian di Venola, Vergato, Riola, Associazione Casagialla- Progetti per crescere
Music schools: Scuola Popolare di musica Ivan Illich, Associazione Culturale Novarcanto



  1. Francesca, you seem to be a thoughtful musician and would make a great educator. Your hunch that ‘children need someone who ….is interested in their general development..’ is right on the money.

    Too often music educators sadly put music or musical results first. You must have had great experiences as a child studying piano and it seems as they have obviously left their mark.

    Your ideas about making music with everyday objects remind me of a class I took with composer Edward Diemente at The Hartt School of Music in CT. How much fun to record and manipulate sounds using everything from a set of golf clubs to an electric toothbrush!

    Continued success to you.
