Il Volo’s music as a therapy against a delay in expressive language? It is possible and it really happened. Talking is a young mom.
IL VOLO: “THEIR MUSIC HELPED MY BABY.” The testimony of a mother.
IL VOLO, the world-renowned pop-lyrical trio, who have had a long history of success, has become the protagonist of a song therapy phenomenon, so-called music therapy. This is a psycho-emotional phenomenon that would help with the aid of music to overcome more or less important pathological events.
Tell us how your son discovered the group.
M.S. : C.’s story with IL VOLO begins in February, 2015, with Sanremo. He was only 3 years old when he was fascinated by their proud voices. When I bought the CD he listened to it by playing the songs. In the evening he asked me to search the movies and lyrics on the net. He wanted to know everything about those three special guys.
So an irrepressible passion for IL VOLO has exploded. Then what happened?
M.S: Meanwhile, C. had started logo therapy because of a delay in expressive language that forced him to express himself with a reduced vocabulary and all his own. He did not cooperate and to get it in tune with the therapist I came to an idea: if he had done well and with commitment did the exercises, at the end he could sing the songs of Il Volo. This tactic has produced good results.
When did he meet his idols?
M.S. : In August, 2015, at a charity dinner held in Roseto, C. met his ‘Laluca’ (so called Gianluca Ginoble). It was the first conquest, when I saw him talk to the singer I was excited, until the day before he had never spoken to strangers.
Did he meet the other members of the trio?
M.S. : Sure! On August 9, 2015, we were at the Chieti concert. We go in and C. sings all the songs, sees the boys and wants to greet them, but I do not know how to do it. He attracts the attention of a Gianluca companion who kindly takes us to the gates. The gates are closed and security does not allow them to go further. The little boy weeps and shouts. Piero hears the child cry and says to security, ” Let that baby and mom pass.” Ciro holds him tight and he also looks at Gianluca. Unfortunately with Ignazio Boschetto, there was no meeting.
Since then did you start to see improvements?
M.S. : Yes, that’s right. The new CD is released and C. is more and more enthusiastic, and then a book on the trio is released. Every night I had to tell him a story about the boys adventures. Meanwhile, C. had achieved steady progress.
You’ve done everything to create contact opportunities with IL VOLO …
M.S. : Of course, because I saw my baby happy and benefited. C., thanks to the music of Il Volo, has made giant footsteps. He began studying singing (he was enrolled in a singing school) and as a song (for admission to the school) he performed PER TE CI SARO.
IL VOLO is now part of your child’s everyday life, which has identified almost a model to follow in them.
M.S. : Exactly. Even when he notices that someone behaves badly, he blames him and advises him to listen to their music, because he will do so well, because they are the best.
To what extent is your child’s therapy today?
M.S. : He’s still doing therapy. The road is long, but today it is unrecognizable for the improvements he has made. I can only do thanks to my doctors and my family, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca who unknowingly helped my child with their GRANDE AMORE.
