Preview

Music educators and practicing musicians have failed to benefit as much as they could from the past two decades of music psychology research. In this book, the authors propose to improve the situation by describing new approaches, informed by recent psychological research, to teaching music, learning music, and making music at all educational levels. Each chapter represents the collaboration between a music psychologist and a music educator. The articles begin by outlining music-psychological issues that are probably unfamiliar to musicians and music educators. Then, they propose teaching strategies and materials inspired by the psychologists' findings. The book's twenty-one articles cover the broad issues of “the developing musician”, “subskills of musical performance”, and “instruments and ensembles”.
