Day One: Learning the Language of Music Learning Theory

On day one, we’ll explore and experience the three main tenants of Music Learning Theory – audiation, aptitude, and sequential learning.  We’ll learn how each one is interdependent upon one another and how we as music educators can help students reach their musical potential.
