The design of the lesson

The lessons are based on certain basic principles. These can ultimately be found in the design of the lessons again. Each course day is divided into four phases.

1. The preparation phase

In the preparatory phase, a general preview of the learning material is provided.

2. The relaxation phase

Afterwards it is usual to do mental and physical relaxation exercises. A stress-free state is, like in the first Article described, the key to successful learning.

3. The cognitive phase

The cognitive phase that follows is Presentation focus on the learning material. The material is actively processed through the lively and detailed presentation of the learning content by the teacher. As many of the participants' senses as possible should be addressed.

The core of the lesson is the seance or learning concert. Here the material is presented under musical accompaniment by the teacher. The decisive factor is that the spoken word is varied in adaptation to the dynamics of the music and the content transmitted. According to Losanov, this was the most important phase.

The Combination of verbal and non-verbal stimuli, as well as cognitive, emotional and artistic means is a big one Significance to attribute. The latter in particular ensures a liberating and informal atmosphere.

It has been found that trophotrope music (characterized by legato and gentle flow) not only triggers relaxation, but also improves the communication ability.

Neuroscientists have also found that music has similar effects as food, social signals, or noise. Music provides an increased output of dopamine and thus stimulates the reward system of the human body.


Finally, it can be said that the research results in general show the suggestive method in a positive light.

Learning processes are accelerated and seem to last longer. By the way, participants are more relaxed and social skills are encouraged.
