Demorest, Steven M.; Serlin, Ronald C.
Journal of Research in Music Education, v45 n1 p67-79 Spr 1997
Revises an earlier experiment that revealed age-related increases in sensitivity to rhythmic information when judging the difference between a theme and selected pitch and rhythm variations. Tested the possibility that the developmental differences found earlier were due to characteristics of the test melody. Results supported the earlier study. (MJP)
