Learning to play music-Verwey

A considerable amount of knowledge has been developed with respect to the learning of movement sequences (e.g., in the DSP task by Verwey). Together with a student who is preferably already proficient in playing a musical instrument, I would like to study different exercises that improve the proficiency of learning new musical pieces. This may involve using a MIDI keyboard that allows detailed assessment of key strokes, but other registration methods may be possible too.

If you are interested, please contact Willem Verwey and see whether, together, we can develop an interesting new paradigm for learning to play music.
