The action research background of Gordon's music "listening and thinking" theory in vocal teaching stems from the pursuit of innovative music education and a deep understanding of individual differences among students.Under this theoretical framework, teachers can apply teaching methods more flexibly, pay attention to the individual development of students, and stimulate their independent thinking and creative expression of music. By conducting action research on the application of Gordon's theory of "listening and thinking" in music, educators can gain a deeper understanding of students' experiences and reactions in music learning, further promote innovation and optimization of vocal teaching models, guide students more targeted, enhance their musical literacy and comprehensive abilities, promote vocal education to better meet the needs of contemporary students, and cultivate music learners with independent thinking and creative expression abilities.
