Music Perception and Cognition

(p.3) Introduction
MENC Handbook of Musical Cognition and Development

Andreas C. Lehmann

Oxford University Press

Research in perception and cognition in music has seen tremendous growth over the last two decades. In the wake of recent advances in neurobiology, trying to separate perception and cognition has become less appropriate and useful. In order to be of maximal use for music educators, the work here tries to understand cognition in its broader sense, namely, how it applies in the context of experience, training, development, and culture. The first five chapters of this book proceed from the basic neurological and cognitive processes to a panoramic view of musical development and the theories behind research on learning. The last two chapters concentrate on music performance skills, musical expression, and the audience.

Keywords:   musical perception, musical cognition, neurobiology, music educators
