Based on the pedagogy of Dr. Edwin E. Gordon’s Music Learning Theory, this long overdue book contains:

  • A concise overview and sequential guide for how to learn to audiate
  • Tonal patterns and rhythm patterns which form the basis of a musician’s musical vocabulary
  • An overview of all tonalities and meters
  • Explanations of how to improvise within a tonal or rhythmic context 
  • How to read all of the musical patterns one has already learned to think and speak
  • 5 Reading Sequences and over 15 Reading Benchmarks which combine tonal and rhythm patterns into "real" music.

The Literate Musician is both an ideal workbook for music students aged 10 to 100, as well as a secondary textbook for Music Learning Theory practitioners.
