About us


Harmony-Games, the collection to learn music through games, was born in 2012 with the aim of offering new pedagogical resources to music education professionals. Its main driver, Oriol Ferré, an enthusiast of small inventions, has enjoyed experimenting with different materials and designing his own creations all his life. Therefore, convinced that innovation is not only possible but also necessary, he set about executing this project.

The products of the Harmony-Games collection allow the development of abstract observation and analysis, the imitation of patterns as well as experimenting with new methodological possibilities. But above all, they are interactive materials whose main appeal is their diverse uses: some can be painted with “vileda” blackboard markers, others can be stacked, or folded, or embedded like a puzzle, or even struck to generate music. Musical Cups, magic cubes, harmonic cards and a long list of didactic materials … In short, a dynamic, playful and stimulating set of tools that will undoubtedly facilitate the task of music education teachers.

The promotion of creativity through play (a new approach to music education)

The different Harmony-Games materials aim to create a work environment that favors the creative potential of the student; an environment favorable to the exchange of learning experiences. Create, invent, transform and mold through different techniques; the best way to learn. As Sir Ken Robinson said: “the process of having original and valuable ideas often arises from the interaction of perspectives from different disciplines.

Harmony-Games has been introduced into several spaces of training and learning in the music education sector, where it has had a fantastic reception among teachers.
