The Sounding Symbol intends to provide teachers and students with the essential understanding of what constitutes good practice in the classroom. The author does so by combining recent research on music theory, particularly on music and the brain, with a strong practical emphasis on how this applies in class. This book concentrates first on the aural experience before relating this to the symbol, or written form of notation. Individual chapters then use practical examples to illustrate how this understanding applies to listening, composing and instrumental teaching.
