Summary

The fields of music psychology/education and music therapy have grown significantly in the past two decades. Curiously though, they have developed somewhat in isolation from the humanities, and more specifically, the study of music itself 'musicology'. While attempts have been made (by Eric Clarke and Nicholas Cook) to use psychological research to help our understanding of musicology, the relationship has not been reciprocated. Applied Musicologyexplores and demonstrates how musicology can influence and inform the psychological study of music within the social sciences. Within the book, Professor Ockelford establishes and lays the foundations for a new field of enquiry - 'applied musicology'. The book includes chapters on a range of topics including,perfect pitch, music and autistic savants, and anticipatory processes in music. It is of interest for students and researchers in music psychology and musicology.
