In our music performance laboratory we have focused on the physical,
behavioral, and psychological systems which contribute to excellence in
instrumental music performance. Our research has primarily focused on
brass performance, but includes research on the practice habits of vocalists,
string, percussion, woodwind, and keyboard performers as well.
Our research is aided by undergraduate students who share our interest
in music and has been greatly enriched by our colleagues in the music,
physics, and psychology departments here at Gustavus.
Please feel free to contact either Dr. Mark Kruger or Dr. Mark Lammers
(pictured below), or our newest team member, Dr. Jon Kruger if you have
any questions. Contact information for each of us can be found in the
Faculty section of these web pages.
