Joshua Merriweather Psychology of Music Assignment 3/9 One thing that I found really interesting in this journal article was the study of human synchronization with a metronome. I, myself, play guitar and use a metronome to practice staying on beat. Although I have musical training, its not surprising that people without musical training can also synchronize with a metronome because humans are rhythmic creatures. What was really interesting was that nonhuman primates were also able to synchronize with the metronome at one point. They could reproduce the same interval but had difficulty when it came to changing the tempo, as it took them an entire year to be trained for this. Thus human-like beat-based processing seems to not come easily to nonhuman primates. Chimpanzees may have the capacity for anticipatory synchronization though. It does however show us that human-like synchronization is possible in monkeys and apes, which is really interesting to me. It’s exciting to see that there are musical possibilities in animals other than humans because it seems that music really is a biological adaptation rather than an invention. I like to believe that music is a thing that is innate in life because I have this romantic fairytale belief about music. Music is the gateway to the soul and I think it would be amazing if all life were able to experience it.
