Abstract

A study was done to focus on the role of experience in tonality induction by comparing younger and older adults on contemporary popular and classical music excerpts using dual-keyboard technique. The dual-keyboard technique was found successful in revealing the ability of young and older listeners to systematically induce tonality regardless of their musical or keyboard experience. The procedure minimized memory and sensory constraints through repetition and provision of auditory feedback via the keyboard setup.
