About this title

Synopsis:

Musicians tend to believe that the mystery of their art cannot be objectively studied, quantified, or explained. As a result, the term «motor learning» is rarely used in connection with musicians, and an empirical approach to musical performance is more the exception than the rule. Sports scientists, however, show a great interest in musicians because of their advanced skill level and the attentional and emotional demands of the concert stage. This work combines knowledge across disciplines. Advances toward an understanding of human behavior and cognition offer clues to strategies of motor learning and performance that promote the well-being of musicians and athletes. This book provides a forum for an interdisciplinary exchange of research, laying the groundwork for future projects.

About the Author:

The Editor: Adina Mornell, born in Los Angeles, is a classical pianist and recording artist who studied Music, Literature, Musicology, and Psychology in the U.S. and Germany, receiving her doctorate in Music Psychology in Austria. She is Professor and Chair of Instrumental and Vocal Pedagogy (IGP) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (Austria) where she conducts scientific research on musical performance and expertise.
