Music Psychology

Disciplines of Study [DoS]  ]

Music Psychology is a symbiotic interdiscipline between the fields of music and psychology that is concerned with psychological (and therefore inevitably also touching upon related fields of sociology, anthropology and neuroscience) aspects and effects of music upon human beings.

Research is concerned with such issues as musical emotion, musical memory, the acquisition of musical skills, musical perception, therapeutic uses of music and music education. Musicians, composers and music theorists have become increasingly interested in psychological models as means of better understanding the perception and cognition of musical works.
