This is an intensive four-day workshop is taught by Profs. David Huron and Daniel Shanahan.

Participants will learn how to design and carry out music experiments, and how to apply empirical, systematic and statistical techniques to music-related problems. The workshop is designed specifically to develop practical research skills for musicians and music scholars with little or no previous background in empirical methods.

In this workshop participants are introduced to descriptive, exploratory, and questionnaire methods, field research including interview techniques, correlational and experimental methods, research design & introductory statistics, and theory formation and hypothesis testing.

The methods and tools learned by participants will be applicable to most areas of music scholarship, including performance research, music history, music analysis, theory, music psychology, education, semiotics, music sociology & anthropology, cultural policy, and other areas.

The fee for participation is $485. Participants are responsible for their own transporation, food and accommodation.
