Synopsis: As a part of the general human development, musical abilities start to develop before birth and end virtually with death. Every human being has a musical biography containing his or her musical experiences, potentials and activities. Up to the present, research on music abilities and biographies from a lifespan perspective is scarce. This volume presents insights into different aspects of the lifespan development of professional instrumentalists and singers. Ten empirical studies deal with topics like the stages of career development of professional musicians, the development of the singing voice, musical expertise and others. They are of interest for musicians, music teachers, musicologists and other people, who are interested in the developmental psychology of music.
About the Author: The Editor: Heiner Gembris is Professor for Music Education and Music Psychology at the University of Paderborn (Germany) and Director of the Institute for Research on Musical Ability (IBFM). His research interest concentrates on the development of musical abilities and the research on music experiences and preferences. He has published numerous articles and books on these and other topics in the field of music psychology.
