Developing a Musical Ear: A New Experiment. Artificial Intelligence Memo Number 264.
This report deals with research presently being done dealing with the acquisition of musical skills. In an attempt to create a self-paced, independent music study approach, investigators have formulated two main hypotheses: (1) that perception and cognition are inextricably intertwined - not discrete quantities; and (2) that learning behavior in music generally follows similar developmental patterns as in other learning. Instruction is performed through computerized musical sounds by which the student may select a range of up to five octaves and play four parts simultaneously. The analysis and operation of this computerized instructional system is further explained. (Author/CP)
