Music Research on Campus

Written by ainsley. Posted in Uncategorized

You know what’s cool? That research on music cognition happens at our very own campus! And you can get involved as a research subject (and get paid to do so!)

The Music Cognition Lab at UTSC is looking for pianists to participate in an hour-long sight-reading study. All you will be asked to do is sight-read short 4-bar pieces on the piano. Monetary compensation will be provided for participation.

To be eligible, you must:
1. NOT have perfect pitch
2. Be playing piano fairly regularly at the time of the experiment
3. Be able to sight-read fairly fluently at a Grade 7 RCM level or above

To participate, please contact Olivia Podolak at:

Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra Trip

Written by ainsley. Posted in Uncategorized

Hey Guys,

We’re going to be selling tickets for the Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra (TYWO) these next two weeks. If you haven’t ever been to an orchestra, this would be a great place to start. I have had the pleasure to see them perform before, and it is always a treat!

Tickets will be sold during UMS office hours (come check the student centre or the 3rd floor of the AA building) and during band/choir rehearsals. They are $15 each for students, and $25 each for adults and the performance will be on Sunday, November 3rd at 3:00pm at St. Michaels College for the Arts.

Plus, another bonus incentive – but don’t quote me on this – this trip might count towards a mandatory performance required in certain music courses. I will update this once I find out, but you can ask your Professor in the meantime.

Hope to see you all there!
