Listeners (with and without musical experience) as well as performing musicians can participate in experiments in the Sequence Production Lab for a small honorarium. Experiments usually last less than one hour; the tasks usually involve performing or listening to short musical passages. Participants' anonymity is preserved.

Current Experiment:  Agency in Rhythmic Group Synchronization

We are seeking musically trained adults 18-35 years old to tap familiar melodies in small groups as you tap with music. The experiment takes about 75 minutes and is scheduled at your convenience. Participants should have normal hearing and have at least 6 years of private musical instruction. Participants will receive a small honorarium. 

To participate, email spl.psych (at) to reach Dr. Bavo van Kerrebroeck (Principal Investigator). This project is under the supervision of Prof Caroline Palmer, Dept of Psychology, N6/3 Stewart Biology Bldg.
