How can the understanding of analysis of sonata form movements be deepened by the use of graphic representation?

Ferrari, D. and Kokotsaki, D. and Newton, D.P. and Newton, L.D. (2017) 'How can the understanding of analysis of sonata form movements be deepened by the use of graphic representation?', The journal of music and meaning., 14 . pp. 1-20.

Abstract

The aim of the study presented in this paper is to explore the nature of understanding when learning music through the use of ‘graphic representations’ trialled in a learning conversation with a ten-year old flautist. It is argued that the powerful visual component of presenting a musical score in graphic form can enhance students’ understanding and ability to process the score more effectively by providing a succinct way of accessing the data. Central to understanding the analysis of sonata form movements is the need to create a representation which is independent from the existing score. This study offers a practical way of doing this which has the potential for wider application.
