Music has been examined from multiple perspectives: as a product of human history, for example, or a product of human culture. But there is also a long tradition, intensified in recent decades, of thinking about music as a product of the human mind. Whether considering composition, performance, listening, or appreciation, the constraints and capabilities of the human mind play a formative role. The field that has emerged around this approach is known as the psychology of music. Written in a lively and accessible manner, this volume connects the science to larger questions about music that are of interest to practicing musicians, music therapists, musicologists, and the general public alike. For example: Why can one musical performance move an audience to tears, and another compel them to dance, clap, or snap along? How does a "hype" playlist motivate someone at the gym? And why is that top-40 song stuck in everyone's head? ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

The Routledge Companion to Popular Music Analysis: Expanding Approaches widens the scope of analytical approaches for popular music by incorporating methods developed for analyzing contemporary art music. This study endeavors to create a new analytical paradigm for examining popular music from the perspective of developments in contemporary art music. "Expanded approaches" for popular music analysis is broadly defined as as exploring the pitch-class structures, form, timbre, rhythm, or aesthetics of various forms of popular music in a conceptual space not limited to the domain of common practice tonality but broadened to include any applicable compositional, analytical, or theoretical concept that illuminates the music. The essays in this collection investigate a variety of analytical, theoretical, historical, and aesthetic commonalities popular music shares with 20th and 21st century art music. From rock and pop to hip hop and rap, dance and electronica, from the 1930s to present day, this companion explores these connections in five parts: Establishing and Expanding Analytical Frameworks Technology and Timbre Rhythm, Pitch, and Harmony Form and Structure Critical Frameworks: Analytical, Formal, Structural, and Political With contributions by established scholars and promising emerging scholars in music theory and historical musicology from North America, Europe, and Australia, The Routledge Companion to Popular Music Analysis: Expanding Approaches offers nuanced and detailed perspectives that address the relationships between concert and popular music.

Following her distinguished earlier career as a concert pianist and later as a music theorist, Jeanne Bamberger conducted countless case studies analysing musical development and creativity the results of which were published in important scientific journals. Discovering musical mind draws together in one source these classic studies, offering the chance to revisit and reconsider some of her conclusions. Reviewing the data in light of current theories of cognitive development, she discusses how some of the conclusions she drew stand up to scrutiny, whilst in other cases, anomalies turn out to have greater significance than expected. The book is a collection of Bamberger's papers from 1975 to 2011. It includes her first study of Beethoven's original fingerings, her beginning work with children's invented notations, close observations and analysis of children in the Laboratory for Making Things, studies of musically gifted children, and the emergent musical development of students in elementary-secondary school and university undergraduate and graduate studies. The observations and research lead to the development of an interactive, computer-based music environment that uses her pragmatic theory of musical development as the basis for a project-oriented program for teaching and learning. Unlike other collections, the book is both interdisciplinary and strongly practical. It brings together and integrates Bamberger's background in music theory, research in music perception and music education, performance, cognitive development, artificial intelligence, and procedural music composition. Her multi-faceted approach to music theory and music pedagogy is guided throughout by her commitment to an understanding and respect for an individual's natural, creative musical intelligence. This natural competence becomes the formative ground on which to help people of all ages build an ever growing understanding and engagement with the evolving structures of the world's music. Bringing together a body of research currently scattered across a range of journals, or simply no longer available, the book will make fascinating reading for those in the fields of musical developmental and educational psychology.

What Is Everyone Talking About? Throughout my forty-five years of life, many people (family, friends, teachers, neighbors, co-workers, bosses, professionals, or others) have made verbal statements regarding how I act, respond, or think. Here is a wide variety of the most common among them: Susan, quit biting yourself! Susan, stop banging your head on the floor! Why are you hurting yourself? Stop flapping your hands in the airyou look like a fairy! Susan doesnt have any sense of pain. Put those shoulders down and stop rocking. Stop kicking your feet and carrying on this temper tantrum. Slow down! Lift up your chin and look at me, not out in space. Stop screaming! Stop yelling! Talk slower! Youre too loud! Stop your damn laughing; there is nothing funny about that. Susan is so sensitive about everything. Stop staring off somewhere and pay attention. Susan is nervous and jerkymostly jerky. Are you deaf? Answer me. Your thinking is backward. You are such a klutz. Why are you so clumsy? What did you do nowcrash? Stop spinning that radio; youre going to break it! Susan, will you stop spinning the dice and take your turn. Stop spinning the spinner; we want to play the game! Stop, Susan, youre going to ruin the record player, turning the turntable by hand! Sue, you talk about the same things over and over. Susie, we are tired of you asking us the same questions. We already answered it. No, the answer didnt change! Susan, get out of that room and socialize! Sue, why are you going on and on about the same thing? We are not even talking about that anymore. Susan is so damn stubborn. Why arent you emotionally sensitive to other people? Do you believe everything people say? You take things people say way too literally! You take things too seriously! You have no sense of humor! Nobody understands what the hell you are talking about! What is wrong with you? Susan, stop making that noise! Susan, will you shut up!!!! Listen to what I saidare you deaf? You are a blockhead! You are a half-wit! Why do you do the same things all the time? Why do you eat the same things all the time? Dont talk to Susan. She wont understand! Susan, we dont want to hear your problems! Will you stop organizing everything! Youre weird! Youre odd! Youre stupid! Youre a retard! Sue, you are so slow. Youre not getting it! Youre always lost; thats why I love you! God, youre so naive! Geez, youre a moron! Stop talking with your hands and tell me what you want! Close your mouth! You look like an idiot! Stop pinching! You are so exasperating! Youre crazy! What is Susan so upset about? Calm down! Youre a pain! Stop pointing at things and speak up if you want something! WellSusan, we thought you were possessed! You never did like change! Susan, you are going to have to adjust to change in order to survive! You are so task oriented. Do you do everything people tell you to do? Susie, do you remember everything people say? Susie, you have a remarkable memory! Youre like a computer! You need to be yourself; you are a chronic people pleaser! Dont touch her; she jumps! Comments like these or others would send an automatic wave of scrambling. The behaviors you want to change would become more intense, or an emotional outburst would follow. If you are displeased about us, then we are displeased with you but for different reasons. Ours are Why? You dont make sense to me. Your words hurt me. Your actions hurt me. Your tone of voice hurts me. Your facial expression (if we can make eye contact) scares me. Leave me alone! We may look at you with intense anger or wave our arms in a panicky motion. We may push things, kick, scream, bite, pinch, cry uncontrollably, or withdraw. Physical contact becomes unbearable. Remember, we are scrambled. The words used by others cause friction in our brain circuits
