On Monday 20 June, Lower Sixth Psychology students were visited by Dr Antonia Ivaldi from Aberystwyth University. Dr Ivaldi talked to the students about her subject specialism of Music Psychology. Students listened to a range of different music clips and considered the various reasons why psychologists might be interested in them. A particular highlight was the clip from Live Aid showing the performance of Queen’s Freddie Mercury! Students considered the way in which Freddie engaged the crowd, they then contrasted this performance to one of a BBC young musician of the year’s violin piece.
