Abstract

Students in music theory classes at Central Washington University participated in a study on field dependent -independent cognitive style and the relation to students’ scores on harmonic dictation tests. Participants were tested for field dependence-independence using the Group Embedded Figures Test. These scores were then compared with scores on harmonic dictation tests. According to the hypothesis, participants who score as field-independent will score higher on harmonic dictations than those who test to be field-dependent, and this difference will be significant. Keywords: field dependent-independent, harmonic dictation, music perception, cognition
