Musical Training Research
USF faculty are putting the old joke about “practice, practice, practice” being the best way to get to Carnegie Hall to the test. A teacher from the School of Music is teaming with a pair of Department of Communication Sciences researchers to look at what piano training can teach us about how we learn. We’ll have more on University Beat on WUSF TV.
