Kuhn, Terry Lee; Booth, Gregory D.
Journal of Research in Music Education, v36 n3 p140-55 Fall 1988
Investigated the influence of melodic activity (ornamented and plain) on students' perception of tempo. Third, fifth, and sixth graders indicated whether the tempo of the second example in each paired comparison item was faster, slower, or stayed the same. Suggests that tempo perception lessons be preceded by instruction on melodic activity and then on identifying and discriminating between them. (GEA)
