Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

This is an extremely well-considered book by three familiar and extremely influential figures within their field, professional academics with distinct specialisation and musical competency. ...suitable for the classroom, and as a teaching resource, it is a comprehensive overview of psychology for musicians. (Singing: The Association of Teachers of Singing, Number 53)

Présentation de l'éditeur

This book provides a concise, accessible, and up-to-date introduction to psychological research for musicians - performers, music educators, and studio teachers. Designed to address the needs and priorities of the performing musician rather than the research community, it reviews the relevant psychological research findings in relation to situations and issues faced by musicians, and draws out practical implications for the practice of teaching and performance. Rather than a list of DOs and DON'Ts, this book equips musicians with an understanding of the basic psychological principles that underlie music performcance, enabling each reader to apply the content flexibly to the task at hand. Following a brief review of the scientific method as a way of thinking about the issues and problems in music, this text addresses the nature-nurture problem, identification and assessment of musical aptitude, musical development, adult skill maintenance, technical and expressive skills, practice, interpretation and expressivity, sight-reading, memorization, creativity, and composition, performance anxiety, critical listening, and teaching and learning. While there is a large body of empirical research regarding music, most musicians lack the scientific training to interpret these studies. This text bridges this gap by relating these skills to the musician's experiences, addressing their needs directly with non-technical language and practical application. The book includes multiple illustrations, brief music examples, cases, questions, and suggestions for further reading.

Very Helpful for Teachers and Students 19 octobre 2008
Par Peter L. Forte - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As a formally trained pianist and clarinetist and an informally trained drummer I have found this book very insightful and informative. This book is very scientific and very real. Numerous studies have been cited and all the information is scientifically backed. This is what makes it so useful for teachers and students. Specific techniques and methods for teaching and learning are combined with a stimulating mix of philosophy and psychology.

From a book lover's perspective, this is not exactly an easy or fun read. I enjoy reading almost anything and I certainly enjoyed this book, however, if you're not a teacher, or someone who has a direct need to study teaching methodology, there are other books that are far more adventurous about the psychology of music and how our brains injest and interpret different aural stimuli. Two particularly fascinating books on this subject are "The Tao of Music," by John Ortiz, and "Music, the Brain, and Estacy," by Robert Jourdain.

As a former music major at the University of New Haven, I feel like this book should start appearing as a required text for many relevant college classes. Also, anyone building a library or a collection of books on music should have this book.

Psych for Musicians is one of the few comprehensive studies. 5 avril 2010
Par Musician 35 - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is a very detailed, comprehensive view of the music making process. It primarily refers to professional musicians, and the process by which they learn, memorize, play, compose, and improvise music. There is also some valuable information on performance anxiety that almost all musicians deal with. While it is great to finally see such detailed studies to "prove our worth" as musicians, this book is very wordy. A lot of what is said could have been shortened to a few paragraphs per topic, because, to the professional music, it is mostly common sense.
A solid overview that also acknowledges the full breadth of music. 6 octobre 2014
Par MatthewT - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I use this as the primary text for a psychology of music course I teach (a graduate course for music educators). Full disclosure: I know two of the authors from their time at Florida State University. The book is excellent on several fronts: it is current with psychological research, and it includes the leading studies in the field without becoming bogged down in references. It is an easy read overall, which students appreciate. Cross cultural features occur throughout the text, often to point out alternatives to research which has tended to focus on understanding music from a Western classical standpoint. There's also good support for approaches to music that are becoming more important in schools: teaching to improvise, compose, and work with popular/informal/vernacular/democratic musics and pedagogies. The text is appropriately generous to the recent research in these areas, and also provides ample support for those interested in offering music education with a more generous conception of music.

I'm glad to have this book as a resource, and a reference. As the previous paragraph hints, this reviewer finds that much psychological research in music suffers from narrow conceptions of music, what Sloboda has called the "pharmaceutical model" of research. This book works well in putting forth the best of the psychological approach while situating this research within the larger world of music.
