Deborah Rifkin recently published, "A Revised Taxonomy for Music Learning" with co-author Philip Stoecker (Hofstra University) in The Journal of Music Theory Pedagogy. This article proposes an adapted learning taxonomy geared specifically for music classes. Using insights from recent advances in cognitive research and perception studies, our taxonomy caters to music learning by accommodating the time-sensitive nature of performed arts. The article introduces the taxonomy, explains its basis in cognitive research, and describes several applications of it in classroom exercises for
