I had a wonderful conversation with Krista Jadro, Music Learning Theory Specialist and Founder of Music Learning Academy, for this episode.

🤔What is Music Learning Theory? What is audiation-based music teaching/learning? Krista explained and went deeper into these questions, and we discussed more MLT-related topics during the interview session.

For Part 1 of this episode, we discussed the following:

✅ How do we learn when we learn music?

✅ What cognitive process do we go through when we listen to, perform, create, read, and write music??

and more!

Krista invites you to the pedagogy of Edwin E. Gordon, music education researcher & pioneer, and the world of Music Learning Theory!

Since MLT (Music Learning Theory) was new territory for me, I asked Siliana to join me as a guest co-host of the show to assist me – she was a fabulous addition to the episode!

🎧 Part 2 will be released on March 7, 2023.
