Abstract or Description

Listening to music is effortless and highly rewarding for most of us. But people with congenital amusia have life-long difficulties in this regard – they don’t recognise tunes that would be familiar to the rest of us and they can’t tell one song from another. This article explores why music is so impenetrable to these people and explains how such individuals offer a unique window on to the typical development of the musical brain.
