Learning Sequences in Music: Skill, Content, and Patterns is a milestone in music education. This book is perhaps the most provocative exploration ever written of how we learn music, from infancy to adulthood, and what we should do to teach music more effectively.Revised, expanded, and completely rewritten for this eighth and final edition, Professor Edwin E. Gordon's continued research reaffirms his place as perhaps the world's principal thinker and researcher in music education. Early controversial ideas championed by Gordon have now been widely accepted in the field: the importance of standardized tests, the crucial role of early childhood music education, and the fundamental need to teach audiation as a precursor to music reading.Professor Gordon continues to present a feast of ideas in this new edition, combining the latest experimental and observational research in music learning with his own experience teaching students of all ages. Topics covered include: the state of music today, audiation, individual differences, aptitude, readiness, and measurement and evaluation.This book is a monumental achievement sure to be read and reread by generations of music educators to come.
