Exploring Dr. Edwin Gordon's Learning Sequence Activities

Dr. Edwin E. Gordon's Learning Sequence Activities, based on decades of his research in music education, allow teachers the opportunity to break down the music fundamentals into very manageable musical bits to present to students in a well sequenced, research based, approach. LSAs improve music skills and audiation (Gordon's term for hearing music in the mind with understanding). They also lead to more musical enjoyment, as a performer, audience member, and active listener.
