Graphic notation is taught to music therapy students at Aalborg University in both simple and elaborate forms. This is a method of depicting music visually, and notations may serve as memory aids, as aids for analysis and reflection, and for communication purposes such as supervision or within research work. This article focuses especially on the simple form. It cites and comments examples from a collection by the author. Additionally, the range of purposes as well as didactics is discussed, and bibliographical information is given.
