Exploring the Musical Mind: Cognition, emotion, ability, function

John Sloboda


Since the publication in 1986 of the book The Musical Mind, music psychology has developed as a vibrant area of research, exerting influence on areas as diverse as music education and cognitive neuroscience. This new book brings together twenty-three chapters and reviews on music and the mind, focusing on ideas, interpretation, argument and application rather than on technical issues.

Keywords: The Musical Mind, music psychology, music, mind, interpretation, cognitive neuroscience, music education
