More About the Author

Ruth Herbert's work focuses on the subjective experience (phenomenology) of music in daily life, and the transformations of consciousness that may occur in conjunction with listening to and making music. Her extensive research interests also embrace music and wellbeing, music education, evolutionary psychology, ethology and performance psychology. Publications include book chapters and articles in both peer reviewed journals and specialist magazines. She currently works for the Open University and was formerly Head of Performance at Dartington College of Performing Arts. She has performed widely as a classical pianist and as a member of a diverse range of ensembles, notably recording soundtracks for two classic silent films.

Product Description


'This book deals with the evanescent and often-elusive topic of musical experience. It sets that topic in context of solid empirical research and reconsiders taken-for-granted distinctions between so-called 'normal' and 'pathological' forms of consciousness, showing us some of the ways that consciousness is musically framed. Everyday Music Listening proves that Music Studies can reach areas and problems inaccessible to other disciplinary modes of investigation. It will be required reading for music scholars. philosophers and clinical psychologists.' -----Tia DeNora, Exeter University, UK

'Everyday Music Listening is an important contribution to a growing body of work that aims to be descriptive - rather than prescriptive - in relation to listening in general, and everyday listening in particular. Anyone interested in this field, as well as phenomenological music psychology, should make it a priority to read this book.' -----Anahid Kassabian, University of Liverpool, UK
