In this chapter, we shared with you some of what we have learned about learning with the hope that this will help you be9er understand and remember our journey together exploring the world’s music. A fundamental concept was the importance of “ac@ve learning,” as it is only if you are a dynamic par@cipant in your learning that you will learn at a deep enough level to remember what you have learned. Remembering is a func@on of your memory, and sense and meaning are highly influen@al in how easily we commit new learning to long-­‐term memory. In this first lab guide, we would like to explore with you how this might relate to music. We’re hoping you’ve had the experience of listening to a piece of music from your past and having it bring up immediate, strong memories of the @me, place, and people associated with your original experiences with the music. One of the reasons you remember the piece so well is that when it first became important to you, it made sense to you. You were probably reasonably familiar with the musical language that created the overall sound of the piece and, if it was a song, you understood the general meaning of the lyrics. You also remember the piece so well because somehow it became meaningful to you. Perhaps its significance is due to your listening to it at a cri@cal @me in your life or because you associate it with B a r k l e y & H a r t w e l l • K e n d a l l H u n t P u b l i s h i n g • G r e a t R i v e r Te c h n o l o g i e s • w. w. w. g r t e p . c o m
