Musical learning is associated with academic performance, although some literature does not support this association. This research aims to analyze the opinion of directors and teachers about the influence of musical learning in academic performance of students who attend this type of teaching in schools in which the Specialized Artistic Education...

Psychoacoustics, as an integral part of neuroscience, is the science that studies the correlation between acoustic stimuli and perceived sensation. In neuroscience, importance is given to the higher functions that occur in the brain, namely in the cerebral cortex. Among the subjective qualities that allow us to describe musical sound, we find pitch...

Na execução dos instrumentos musicais, os músicos adicionam emoção à música por meio de variações em loudness. A série do nível sonoro usada na performance musical é designada de gama dinâmica, a qual varia de pianissimo (pp) a fortissimo (ff). Esta escala pode ser alongada para baixo e para cima, de acordo com a intenção do compositor quanto à exp...

It is known that moving visual stimuli (bouncing balls) have an advantage over static visual ones (flashes) in sensorimotor synchronization, such that the former match auditory beeps in driving synchronization while the latter do not. This occurs in beat-based synchronization but not in beat-based purely perceptual tasks, suggesting that the advant...

A música tem a capacidade de comunicar emoções. A literatura sobre música e emoção evidencia que as características estruturais da música (ex., atributos psicoacústicos, modo, melodia, harmonia e aspetos formais) estão associadas à expressão emocional percebida. Por meio de um estudo qualitativo, pretende-se analisar a relação entre características...

Timbre é uma característica multidimensional do som e permite identificar fontes sonoras. Investigação efetuada sobre timbre musical tem avaliado os efeitos de parâmetros acústicos na compreensão do timbre dos instrumentos. Com este artigo, pretende-se observar a função desempenhada pelo timbre na identidade dos instrumentos musicais. Como estudo q...

Studying music is associated with improving the quality of life for those who practise it, while providing a range of opportunities and experiences (Johnson and Memmott 2006). These stem from the process of teaching and learning music and can enhance people’s abilities to achieve positive musical experiences (Reimer 1999). Thus, music provides a va...

A psicoacústica, ramo da psicofísica, é a ciência que estuda a ligação entre os estímulos acústicos e os atributos psicológicos do som. Por meio da relação entre acústica, psicologia, música e fisiologia podemos compreender a perceção do som. Este artigo tem por objetivo explorar a perceção do pitch enquanto fenómeno importante em música. Ao tratar...

A harmonia musical consta da combinação de sons, a qual pode ser caracterizada por intervalos/acordes de maior ou menor agradabilidade ao ouvido. A consonância e a dissonância são fundamentais na cultura musical ocidental. A explicação das mesmas remonta à antiguidade grega e tem sido alvo de estudo por parte de matemáticos, filósofos, músicos, fís...

There is a positive relationship between learning music and academic achievement, although doubts remain regarding the mechanisms underlying this association. This research analyses the academic performance of music and non-music students from seventh to ninth grade. The study controls for socioeconomic status, intelligence, motivation and prior ac...

Abstract Over time, mathematicians and physicians have found analogies between mathematics and music. At the same time, musicians have found support in mathematics to describe their art. This article consists of a systematization of the connections between mathematical and musical contents. Musical content was divided into the subjects of: 1) Music...

The connections between mathematics and music have been investigated for thousands of years. This article consists of a systematization of the associations between mathematical contents and musical contents. The latter were divided into Theory and musical analysis, Acoustics and Musical composition. Consecutively, the contents of each musical theme...

International Symposium on Performance Science; 01/2007. Music and Mathematics play different roles in society. Although the domains of music and mathematics seem to be vastly different, there is a close and ancient relationship between them. From simple sums to complex functions, mathematical concepts form part of the world of music. Because of t...

The relationship between learning music and academic achievement has been discussed in numerous contexts. According to the literature, students involved in learning music obtain higher results in several school subjects. This study intends to examine the influence of musical training on the academic performance of pupils in schools providing specia...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The positive association between music lessons and academic achievement is well documented in the literature. Students who learn music show better academic achievements than those who are not involved in musical activities. However, this is a multifaceted association that can only be explained if several dimensions are taken into account, such as s...

According to literature, there are broad associations between music and cognitive abilities, which apparently result from the frequency of music lessons. The aim of the present work was to test these associations between a group of music students and a control group of students with no music education, thereby contributing toward understanding the...

The aim of the present work was to contribute to the literature on the benefits of music learning. Music learning develops personal, social and cognitive skills, which may in turn contribute to raise academic achievement. We asked a group of 60 students of the Escola Superior de Música e das Artes do Espectáculo do Porto what reasons led them to ch...

Music improves the development of our brains and helps to improve our abilities in other subjects such as reading and mathematics. From simple sums to complex functions, mathematical concepts form part of the world of music. Because of this connection, it is possible to establish a positive correlation between participation/performance in music and...
