Art in Motion Overview
The first Art in Motion, Musical & Athletic Motor Learning and Performance, took place in 2008 at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, Austria, and generated great interest internationally. The second Art in Motion, Motor Skills, Motivation & Musical Practice, was held in 2010 at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich, Germany and drew an even larger and more diverse audience. Both researchers and practitioners in music and sports continue to find the exchange of ideas and experience that happens at this event unique and invaluable, and the demand for a biannual rhythm continued. The following symposia expanded the number of workshops and included a specialized program for graduate students.
Speakers and participants attending represent such diverse fields as music psychology, music education, motor learning, sports science, neuroscience, human factors, as well as musicians’ medicine.
