In her analysis of observations reported by nurses in actual practice, Dr. Benner applies a model of skill acquisition developed by professors Hubert L. Dreyfus and Stuart E. Dreyfus.

The young child's musical awareness grows as he moves in time and space, explores vocal and body sounds, manipulates musical instruments and physical objects, and works with ideas and concepts in a natural, enjoyable, and concrete way--long before he is asked to master those concepts abstractly.
