Summary/Abstract: This paper presents the results of testing the effects of sound stimulation and other musical activities on six-year-olds and their parents. The results contribute to the enrichment of educational theory and practice towards creativity, motivation, freedom of expression and the development of children’s potentials. Techniques of relaxation, particularly sound stimulation by means of therapeutic instruments, can be adapted to the daily school environment. The majority of opinions were positive, and different information feedback encourages the further inclusion of these and similar activities. Working with Himalayan sound bowls, Planetary Gongs, and Koshi Chimes, can surely improve school processes towards a goal of generating a creative, relaxing and productive atmosphere for their upbringing and education.
