Review of Music, Motor Control, and the Brain

Music Perception, 25:75-80.

In several respects, Music, Motor Control, and the Brain is novel and would be of use to those readers...who are interested in the study of performance. Much of the book diverges from the strictly cognitivist perspective with which we are familiar. Many articles touch on issues that are often discussed as passing concerns (e.g., differences across instruments, the role of kinematics) but not addressed directly. These newer issues combine with chapters representing cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience approaches that will be more familiar to the reader.
