Subject Area: Education

In this course, you will learn about music and music learning from a psychological perspective. You will learn to answer questions such as: Why can music move us to tears or to feelings of ecstasy? What is the relation between music, sex and cheescake? Can music make you smarter, and what is the Mozart Effect? Am I a musical person? How do people become musicians? These questions will be explored through personal reflection on life experiences in music, debating and discussing music related issues with peers, and coming to a deeper understanding of the importance and significance of music in everyday life.
