Because it involves a host of different perceptions, concepts and practices that are linked to particular social considerations, research in music is multifaceted and varied (Cross, 2001). The understanding of music cognition requires the contributions of psychological, neuropsychological, social, cultural, and educational perspectives to provide a full approximation to the phenomenon. Psychological and neuropsychological studies have reported valuable insights regarding both musical perception and music performance. The cognitive and emotional mechanisms underlying the perception of music and how pitch, time, meter, and harmony are processed are of particular concern to researchers (Justus and Bharucha, 2002), as are how music expectations are produced (Pearce and Wiggins, 2012), how musical imagery is related to music perception (Brodsky et al., 2008; Martin et al., 2018), or how performers can regulate their emotional and motivational processes when preparing for concerts (López-Íñiguez and McPherson, 2020, 2021).
