“[A] well-written and accessible introductory text that avoids technical jargon whilst encapsulating the main cognitive processes of music. One of the key messages that resonate throughout this book is how music is experienced within the mind. Although music is capable of manipulating our emotions, memories, and perceptions, we often fail to appreciate the active and subjective role that our minds play in listening to it. Musical Cognition also challenges conceptions regarding what it truly means to be ‘musical,’ using recent evidence to persuasively demonstrate just how ‘musical’ we all really are. . . . [R]efreshing, engaging, enlightening and, most importantly, intelligible by all.”
