Audiation is the ability to hear and understand music for which the sound is not physically present. In short, it’s the ability to think musically. Performing music is a lot like speaking a language.

In music, we must have a collection of tonal and rhythm patterns, and acquire the ability to perform them in musical context, that is, within the harmonic and rhythmic constraints of the tonalities and meters of our culture.
We must seek to understand how music works, so that we are not dependent on others to teach us music, or to rely strictly on musical notation. We want to be independent musical thinkers.
