Music in the Human Experience: An Introduction to Music Psychology, Second Edition, is geared toward music students yet incorporates other disciplines to provide an explanation for why and how we make sense of music and respond to it―cognitively, physically, and emotionally. All human societies in every corner of the globe engage in music. Taken collectively, these musical experiences are widely varied and hugely complex affairs. How did human beings come to be musical creatures?  How and why do our bodies respond to music? Why do people have emotional responses to music? Music in the Human Experience seeks to understand and explain these phenomena at the core of what it means to be a human being.

New to this edition:

  • Expanded references and examples of non-Western musical styles
  • Updated literature on philosophical and spiritual issues
  • Brief sections on tuning systems and the acoustics of musical instruments
  • A section on creativity and improvisation in the discussion of musical performance
  • New studies in musical genetics
  • Greatly increased usage of explanatory figures

Review:

"Music in the Human Experience: An Introduction to Music Psychology, Second Edition, presents a comprehensive and rich account of the field of music psychology, a text readily adaptable for use in both undergraduate and graduate courses in music, psychology, and cognitive science. The breadth of topics covered is remarkable: from an historical overview of the interdisciplinary development of the field to deep coverage of the most established areas of inquiry, the topics are elaborately researched and extremely well-documented with relevant and current citations, supported by a clear writing style and helpful pedagogical supplements." Peter Miksza, Associate Professor of Music Education, Indiana University, USA

"Engagingly written by a scholar with a unique perspective on the field, Music in the Human Experience is the perfect introduction to music psychology. The scope is unparalleled, ranging from the molecular level up to the broader exploration of the social role music plays in different cultures. Yet the discussion never strays far from the concrete way music figures in our everyday lives. The book is beautifully illustrated, and the media tutorials are the icing on the cake. If you are not already fascinated by the phenomenon of music, you will be after having read this excellent book." Patrick N. Juslin, Professor of Music Psychology, Uppsala University, Sweden

"Donald Hodges has an extraordinary ability to marry his deep understanding of music to the fields of philosophy, social science, and music teaching and learning. In this second edition of Music in the Human Experience, we discover some of the most important advances in our conceptual and empirical understanding of why music has the power that it does. The book covers difficult and important topics in decidedly musical ways that should inspire all." ―Peter R. Webster, Scholar-in-Residence, University of Southern California, USA
