Description
In this course, we will explore major topics in the interdisciplinary field of music cognition and perception, with a focus on how people perceive, remember, enjoy, and interact with music. This course will present topics on the primary aspects of the musical experience (pitch, rhythm, meter, and timbre), the mental synthesis of these elements into meaningful musical sound, aspects of musical development in children, music and language, individual differences between musicians and nonmusicians, and studies on musical memory, expectation, and emotion. Recommended Course Preparation: MUSC 101 or MUSC 102 or MUSC 125
