Audiaton is the ability to hear and to comprehend music when the sound is not physically present. The principle of audiation is outlined by Edwin E. Gordon in his Music Learning Theory, which is a research-based explanation of how people learn and process music. The primary conclusion of this research is that the ability to audiate is the most fundamental factor in developing musicianship. Gordon's research and theory have been applied in the field of music education for many years, but have yet to be recognized by the field of vocal pedagogy. The purpose of this treatise is to introduce the principle of audiation and Music Learning Theory to voice teachers and singers, and to provide suggestions for application to the voice studio. It is the author's belief that knowledge and understanding of audiation will provide voice teachers with the ability to enhance the musical and vocal development of voice students.
