Ashley Warmbrodt, who is studying for an MA in Psychology of Music at the University of Sheffield is looking for participants for his study on how listening to music affects one’s emotions. Participants will listen to pre-1959 jazz music and music of their own choice, and tell him how they felt. Participants will wear painless physiological monitors while listening to music. Participants must like listening to jazz to some extent, be 18 or older, NOT be a musician, and be willing and able to come to the University of Sheffied for 30 minutes once. If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
“Musicians” are defined as one who currently plays or practices an instrument (including voice), or one who currently studies music. Participants in this study are considered “non musicians” if they do not fit the “musician” criteria, and if they have not played, practiced, or studied music after age 14.
Participation in this study is completely voluntary, and participants are allowed to drop out at any point if they so choose. This study has been ethically approved by the University of Sheffield.
Thank you so much for your consideration! Please feel free to pass along to anyone you know who may be interested.
