Useful work has been done in recent years in the areas of music psychology, philosophy and education, yet this is the first book to provide a wide assessment of what practical benefits this research can bring to the music practitioner. With 25 chapters by writers representing a broad range of perspectives, this volume is able to highlight many of the potential links between music research and practice. The chapters are divided into five main sections. Section one examines practitioners’ use of research to assist their practice and the ways in which they might train to become systematic researchers. Section two explores research centred on perception and cognition, while section three looks at how practitioners have explored their everyday work and what this reveals about the creative process. Section four focuses on how being a musician affects an individual’s sense of self and the how others perceive him or her. The essays in section five outline the new types of data that creative researchers can provide for analysis and interpretation. The concluding chapter discusses that key question - what makes music affect us in the way it does? The research findings in each chapter provide useful sources of data and raise questions that are applicable across the spectrum of music-related disciplines. Moreover, the research methodologies applied to a specific question may have broader application for readers wishing to take on research themselves.

Review:

'This is an excellent book that should find its way onto the reading list of anyone interested in the many questions surrounding performance, teaching and listening... a welcome addition to the burgeoning body of research in music psychology. It is a well-crafted book that will engage researchers and practitioners who wish to understand how humans experience music.' Music Educators Journal '... an ambitious collection covering a broad range of topics and methods and providing fascinating glimpses into a variety of research in music psychology, particularly of interest to those involved in higher music education... the book is likely to contain something to capture the interest of every potential reader. It provides a valuable resource and a further collection in the field of applied music psychology, which can only benefit the growth of the discipline.' British Journal of Music Education 'This book offers the music practitioner the practical benefits of the work already done in the fields of music psychology, philosophy and education... this book is well worth dipping into. Much of it will be of interest to singer/teachers.' Singing
