by Daniel J. Levitin (1957) - neuroscientist and psychologist from San Francisco, studied music at Berklee, worked in music business, and later got a PhD maybe in something in psychology
Chapter 1 - What Is Music? - From Pitch to Timbre
The piccolo hits the highest notes compared to a violin.
He pretty much has together what you're supposed to know to know music, minus details etc. It goes through things I learned through a lifelong love of music since childhood and entering adulthood.
Apparently, I've found, some people just play and others submit to the meaning behind and interaction about classical etc. music.
He goes into some science and things included in synesthesia, which is things like how music and art are related.
Apparently, people see the music like an extension of the self rather than pleasure in a science or social science.
Chapter 2 - Foot Tapping - Discerning Rhythm, Loudness, and Harmony
I've noticed people from Europe are more efficient and physically coordinated and able.
Chapter 3 - Behind the Curtain - Music and Mind Machine
Apparently, psychologists or scientists of some sort identify music as something that causes a reaction in the brain or maybe the nerves, connected to or in the brain.
I don't find too much interest in kinesthesia, which is like synesthesia except more about psychology. I understand emotions without digging into the brain. It does sound fun, though.
People find joy in the familiar, even familiar classical music.
He is "less interested" he says in the brain/mind.
