About the Author:


William Forde Thompson is Professor of Psychology at Macquarie University, where he conducts research on music, emotion, and performance. He has served as President of the Society for Music Perception and Cognition (2006-2008), Associate Editor at Music Perception, and Editor of Empirical Musicology Review.

Review:


"A fascinating, accessible, and comprehensive examination of the rapidly expanding field of music psychology by a leading researcher who has participated in its development
for the past thirty years. From discussions that span the evolutionary basis of music, examinations of musical disorders, uses of music in therapy, and frank assessments of the potential benefits of music training for nonmusical skills such as reading and mathematics, Music, Thought, and Feeling is certain to inspire renewed passion about this exciting field."--Daniel Levitin, McGill University, author of This Is Your Brain on Music


"This exploration of music and emotion is the most extensive I have ever read"--Barbara J. Crowe, Arizona State University


"Music, Thought, and Feeling is easy to read. I like the "learning outcomes" at the beginning of each chapter."--Elizabeth W. Marvin, Eastman School of Music
