Publication Detail
The ontogenesis of musical behaviour: A sociological perspective
Abstract
Observed musical behaviour is a product of the interface between the individual's neuropsychobiological potential and their socio-cultural environment. This interface constantly shapes musical development and facilitates both cultural transmission and cultural transformation of dominant musical genres. The paradoxical outcomes are that cultures exhibit both musical change and stasis concomitant with musical behaviours that have both unique and common features at the level of the individual. The article rehearses a multidimensional model of the major developmental influences and draws on recent research data to provide examples of how such influences can be positive or negative.
