The Effect of Positive Mindset Trigger Words on the Performance Expression of Non-Expert Adult Singers
Broomhead, Paul
Contributions to Music Education, v37 n2 p65-86 2010
Most musicians strive to create performances that are both technically correct and musically expressive. They make specific changes to their performance to bring out the music's expressive potential. Researchers have attempted to identify these particular changes in order to better understand how expressive performances are created. This is an important undertaking because understanding how expressive performances are created, communicated, learned, and experienced, gives musicians and music teachers knowledge they can use to enhance their performing and teaching with regard to artistry. This study investigates a teaching strategy for enhancing aspects of individual vocal expressive performance (e.g. dynamics, timing, and so on).
