Performances from memory involve complex interactions among various methods of memorizing music. This chapter explores systematic and psychological research that has evaluated such combinations and approaches. Overall, the existing literature on how to memorize music for performance is scarce, and what has been written has focused mainly on pianists. Nevertheless, other instrumentalists can relate to this information in terms of their own memory performance strategies. For singers, the interaction of music and text is central in memorizing their repertoire.
