Music Learning Theory
Music Learning Theory – Students at Rush Elementary in Cinnaminson demonstrate that there is a close parallel between the way students learn music and language. Music teacher Natalia Sigmund says the secret for success is a music learning theory developed by Dr. Edwin Gordon. Sigmund is a certified teacher trainer for the Gordon Institute of Music Learning, and she believes that student success is tied to the way they are taught music. Teachers must understand where students are in their development, and consider their skills and abilities in order to connect with them.
