My research, and this website, aims to contribute as much as possible to the general public by informing you all about the wonderful world of music psychology.

IMPACT is a measure of how my research studies, talks, and papers/ books on music psychology make a difference to how people think about a particular issue or intend to act in the future.

I would love to hear if my work and/or this website has had an impact on your life!

Impact could be anything;

  • You might have learnt something new about music that means you want to try a new way of listening for yourself or someone else.
  • You might intend to talk to your friend, colleague or boss about a way to involve music in your life or the lives of others.
  • You may decide that you would like to study music psychology issues in the future.

Whatever the impact of my work efforts – big or small – I would really appreciate it if you could leave me a little note here to tell me about what has influenced you and how/why. Thank you!
