- Musical notation : A concise description of musical sounds in symbols, such as sheet music and various digital descriptions.
- Musical semantics : The study of how music conveys meaning.
- Musical syntax : A set of culture-specific rules underlying the composition and interpretation of music and often dance, too.
- Music and emotion : An overview of the intricate relationships between music and emotion.
- Music and mathematics : Add brief definition or description
- Music perception : The study of the neural mechanisms involved in people perceiving rhythms, melodies, harmonies and other musical features.
- Development of music perception in children : Carrying out research on the development of music perception in children anatomic and functional development of the auditory system has to be taken into consideration as well as neuropsychological aspects. As there is evidence that there are overlapping processing resources concerning music and language it is plausible to expect transfer effects between those two domains in any way.
- Music production : Principles of generating sounds and music.
- Music psychology : The study of how, when, where and why people engage in music and dance.
