Biography: 

Professor Wapnick's research concerns the evaluation of musical performance, focusing most recently on systematic differences between ratings of intact performances versus sectional ratings, and on the importance of primacy and recency effects. He has examined the influence of extramusical factors such as performer attractiveness, attire, and stage behaviour on ratings, and also has investigated instrument preference in keyboard baroque and Renaissance music.
