This chapter focuses on a single, closely worked out example in which one child (whom I shall call Brad) invents a series of notations, each one a significant transformation of the one before. The Introduction is followed in Part I by theoretical background, where I place the study in relation to relevant theoretical material and also describe the fundamental distinction between path maker and map maker. Part II includes a description of the tune-building task and includes comparisons between typical path makers and map makers both in the music domain and in large-scale space. Part III is the Story of Brad, beginning with descriptions of the environment in which the study took place. Part III is divided into five phases tracing Brad’s evolution from path making toward map making. Part IV summarizes and draws some implications for teaching and learning.
