Worth college credit
This podcast should be worth college credit. My masters was done at UB under the direction of some MLT experts including Dr. Gordon himself and I find myself putting this podcast on while straightening my room. It’s nice to refresh things I already know and practice, but it’s invaluable as a source of new information and understanding.
Dr. Shouldice explains the concepts well with examples and use-cases. It’s as inspiring as it is informational. Thank you.
Have learned so much from this podcast
I have learned so much from this podcast! I used to listen on Spotify and then it disappeared, I was so happy to find it again here! I am an elementary and middle school general music teacher who listens to this podcast to learn more about music learning theory. Thank you for making this!
The podcast I look forward to most!
This is my favorite podcast, period. I am a pianist and an educator who has been fascinated with Music Learning Theory for some time now. Heather’s podcast has helped get my mind around the theory and practice tremendously. It is literally THE podcast I look forward to listening to. Each episode is packed with so much practical value, that I end up listening multiple times (and taking notes). Heather explains complex concepts in a way that is easy to understand. Thank you, Heather, for providing the music educators community with a wealth of knowledge! ~ Siliana
