Under the direction of Dr. Peter Miksza and Dr. Andrew Goldman, the goal of this collaborative group is to pursue interdisciplinary investigations of music and mind. We aim to conduct research that brings members of the Jacobs School of Music together with members of the greater IU community. Accordingly, members of our lab hail from many programs: music education, music theory, musicology, music performance, cognitive science, psychological and brain sciences, media, etc. Together, we will draw from our specialized training as musicians, music theorists, educators, and scientists to investigate the role of music in the human condition, broadly construed.

Lab members meet once per week at a mutually agreeable time and should expect to devote 3 to 5 hours per week to readings and tasks related to ongoing research. It is expected that lab research projects will result in presentations at professional conferences and symposia as well as publications in peer reviewed research journals.
