Book Description

Nov. 13 2012 Cognition and Perception
The Psychology of Music serves as an introduction to an interdisciplinary field in psychology, which focuses on the interpretation of music through mental function. This interpretation leads to the characterization of music through perceiving, remembering, creating, performing, and responding to music.
In particular, the book provides an overview of the perception of musical tones by discussing different sound characteristics, like loudness, pitch and timbre, together with interaction between these attributes. It also discusses the effect of computer resources on the psychological study of music through computational modeling. In this way, models of pitch perception, grouping and voice separation, and harmonic analysis were developed. The book further discusses musical development in social and emotional contexts, and it presents ways that music training can enhance the singing ability of an individual.
The book can be used as a reference source for perceptual and cognitive psychologists, neuroscientists, and musicians. It can also serve as a textbook for advanced courses in the psychological study of music.
  • Encompasses the way the brain perceives, remembers, creates, and performs music
  • Contributions from the top international researchers in perception and cognition of music
  • Designed for use as a textbook for advanced courses in psychology of music

Review

"The editor has succeeded admirably in making.a valuable and timely resource for musicians and psychologists." CHOICE

"I have. several dozen excellent books about music perception and cognition, but none is more dog-eared or more used than the Psychology of Music. The first edition's influence on the field makes a compelling argument for the purchase of this updated and revised version, certain to be a blueprint for new research and a leading resource for many years to come." MUSIC PERCEPTION

"The attributes of the book are thoroughness, authority and clarity. That one volume can so adeptly select, draw on, arrange, assess, amplify its material and invite the reader to draw meaningful and reliable conclusions relevant to his/her love of music is a huge achievement. That the book does so with apposite and well-adduced illustrations while at the same time blending technical and specialist accuracy with accessibility is remarkable. Thoroughness and interest, a refreshing amalgam of (the authors') enthusiasm with their collective and individual command of the literature and practices in the field(s) of each make it nothing short of superb as a reference (to be consulted) and a narrative (to be read from cover to cover) by lovers of serious music of all types." - EXCERPT BY MARK SEALEY for www.classicalnet.com

From the Back Cover

The Psychology of Music, Third Edition, is a comprehensive reference for understanding the perception, cognition, and performance of music. The first edition became the calling card for the establishment of the field, the second edition was extremely well-reviewed, and the third edition is now 80% revised, incorporating what are now standard areas of study on pitch, rhythm, scales, etc, with newer cutting edge research on computer models of music cognition, comparative studies, brain plasticity, and emotion.
