Terry, Peter C. and Karageorghis, Costas I. (2011) Music in sport and exercise. In: The new sport and exercise psychology companion. Fitness Information Technology, Morgantown, WV. United States, pp. 359-380. ISBN 978-1-935412-02-1


In this chapter, we have integrated the corpus of research work we have generated over the past two decades with the findings of other researchers around the world to rigorously examine whether music has a meaningful and reliable effect. We describe situations in which music us likely to benefit performance and also address those in which it may debilitate performance.
