Welcome to the Australian Music & Psychology Society

A society for the discussion of research that reflects the intersection of psychology & music

AMPS Forum

Out forum shares interesting news and events relating to music and psychology. The AMPS Forum is a fresh take on the long standing AMPS Newsletter

The goal of the Australian Music and Psychology Society (AMPS) is to stimulate discussion and scholarly research on music and psychology in Australia.

AMPS has grown steadily in its membership since its formation in 1996. It now represents the national body of researchers in this field, and is a member of the Asia-Pacific Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (APSCOM). Along with sister organisations in the Asia-Pacific region (APSCOM), the United States (SMPC) and Europe (ESCOM), AMPS represents our community and Australian research on the international stage, primarily through the International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition (ICMPC).

  • Discuss research through node-based events
  • Attend our biennial conference
  • Our meetings and conferences feature local and overseas presenters addressing a variety of topics
