This singing study is conducted by a multidisciplinary team of researchers from the University of Melbourne and University of Montreal. We are interested in understanding how singing ability vary in the population and greatly appreciate your interest in our research.
Before you decide to participate, please read the following information.
There are six components altogether:
- Sing a familiar song three times.
- Hear and match pitches by moving a pitch slider.
- Hear and sing some pitches.
- Hear and sing some short melodies.
- Hear 2 versions of a familiar song and judge whether they sound right.
- Answer some questions about your music and singing experience.
It will take you approximately 20-30 minutes to complete this assessment. If you can't finish it in one go, you will be able to save your progress and resume the study at a more convenient time. To do so, we will be asking for your email address later.
We promise we will not spam, sell, or inappropriately use your email address beyond the purpose of the study.
At the end of the assessment, we will let you know how you did in the second component. You can also choose to receive a summary report by email on how you did in the other components.
This research has no known risks or anticipated direct benefits. Your participation in this research is completely anonymous and voluntary. You can end your participation at any time without penalty.
Your responses will be stored securely on a password-protected secure server. Your experiment data may be shared with other researchers. The results and data from this experiment will be shared with the public.
