This week we will look at some of the basic psychological principles related to music and movement. You will also learn about some of the terminology we use and we will start to explore different research methods used.

Did you listen to a particularly good piece of music over the weekend? Did you sit still listening? Did you dance or move in any other way? Did you know the song from before? Did the music move you emotionally, or bring back memories? Please tell us about it in the comments section below!

Remember to use the dictionary.
