Dr. George Waddell, Royal College of Music (UK): "You be the Judge: The science and practice of evaluating music performance"


Abstract
The decisions made by judges, audiences, examiners, and teachers shape the training and careers of every musician. This talk will examine research questioning the reliability and consistency of music performance evaluations, the science of how people make decisions about the quality of music performance, and how we might better prepare both musicians and their judges for the rigours of performance assessment.
