invented notation in children's musical communication

(p.117) Chapter 6 Representation, cognition, and communication
Musical Communication

Margaret S. Barrett

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the communicative role of invented notation in children's experiences. It provides an overview of research in children's thinking as users of invented notation; examines the communicative role of invented notation as initiation into the use of conventional symbolic systems and/or externalization of musical thinking; and explores the potential relationship of invented notation to other forms of sign-making activity (drawing, writing, using mathematical symbols). To provide a context for the discussions some of the roles of notation in musical communication in the broader context of western music are briefly examined.

Keywords:   musical communication, invented notation, music notations, musical thinking, children's experiences, sign-making activity
