This book draws together pioneering contributions to the study of the processes by which music is created. It redresses a balance in contemporary literature on the psychology of music which has, to date, concentrated mainly on receptive processes. The focus throughout is on empirical observation and the development of cognitive theory, with fascinating explorations of such topics as the generation of expression in musical performance, problems of synchrony in ensemble performance, improvisational skill in trained and untrained musicians, childrens' spontaneous notations for music, and formal constraints on compositional systems.

From where, and by what mechanisms, does an individual's musical ability originate? The interest surrounding this question has recently been heightened by research into prenatal perception of sound, particularly among developmental and music psychologists. This timely volume provides an up-to-date, integrative account of research on the development of musical ability, particularly in infancy and early childhood. Each chapter addresses central issues and charts a child's developmental progress with reference to his or her changing environment: from the intense and semi-exclusive mother-baby bond, to the wider contexts provided by family, school, and society at large.
