Perceived Musicianship

Wikis > Glossary > Perceived Musicianship

Perceived musicianship is the degree to which a listener perceives the performer of a musical excerpt to be musical. Musical performances that are perceived to be musical have been found to demonstrate commonalities in microtiming. In particular, the use of rubato that is perceived to be musical has been found to occur in the same location in individual phrases (Johnson 1997).
