Discovering the Musical Mind

Oxford University Press

The title of this chapter is meant to have a double meaning—noticing time as it is continuously running on, and stopping time to note it. The two meanings create an essential tension. When we are in action, we are moving with time, noticing it only as its events disappear, whereas when putting actions and sound on paper, noting them, we are holding time and motion still to be looked at. And in between these two senses of noting, we germinate disagreements, conflicts, and sometimes even important resolutions. The chapter argues that recognizing and confronting these tensions may provide a path towards understanding the breakdowns in communication that often occur between educators and their students—most particularly those students who are living, navigating, and learning in a world of action and of flux.
