About this title


This study presents a cognitive view of problems in musicology and suggests that in order to understand music one needs to understand musicians' real-time process, not simply its end product as is customary. The author introduces an information-processing theory of music, documents its empirical data base, and shows that insight into human memory necessitates a rethinking of assumptions made in music theory, musicology, and musical pedagogy. For this reason, the book develops a model of musical memory. Psychomusicology, an experimental study of musical behavior, is adopted as the basis of cognitive musicology.

In the first part of this study the author elaborates the notion of musicology as an empirical and experimental science. Problems of music acquisition and musical learning are treated in the second part, and the final section presents problems of ongoing psychomusicological research.

The mono graph is addressed to readers in the musical as well as the broader scientific community. Supported with sixty-three illustrations, a bibliography, glossary and an index, it could serve as a textbook for graduate courses in music theory, the methodology of musicological research, the cognitive psychology of music, and cognitive problems of music education.
