We review research which shows that performers are able to communicate specific emotions to listeners, and that they use a large number of musical features in the performance to accomplish a particular expression. The findings are organized according to a theoretical framework, which describes the communicative process in terms of E. Brunswik's (1956) lens model. We also discuss traditional strategies for teaching expression, including the use of metaphors, aural modeling, and felt emotion, and conclude that these strategies rarely provide informative feedback to the performer. A new and empirically based approach to teaching expression called cognitive feedback is outlined, and its efficacy evaluated. The goal is to provide performers with the tools they need to develop their own personal expression.
