Gordon's theory into professional training of early music education teachers at Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz, Poland. The author recognises the importance of shaping research and musical instrument technical (including interdisciplinary) competences of future teachers as they help students use not only practical (pedagogical), but also empirical work of E.E. Gordon's theory. Additionally, the text presents the reports from research on the application of E.E. Gordon's Theory, carried out by students of early school and innovative music education at Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz, Poland. Music Fairytale “e–Audiation Songbook” is the first interdisciplinary project, which is the result of cooperation between music pedagogy, computer science and mechatronics students.
