    For things that are easy and well-learned, arousal causes us to perform these tasks more quickly and accurately.
    For tasks that are difficult and less well-learned, arousal causes us to perform these tasks less quickly and less accurately.

          

  8. Osborne & Kenny (2008) and fears associated with performing?298 adolescents wrote about worst experience in a music performance - what happened, how they felt, their age, who the audience was

  31. The difference with Zajonc's theory to Cottrell's theory is essentially just what's actually causing the arousal?Music typically regarded as more "feminine" subject for children.

    In Western culture (O'Neill & Boulton, 1996)
    flutes, violins, clarinets viewed appropriate for girl
    drums, guitar, trumpet viewed appropriate for boy.

    Research indicates that you can change children's gender stereotypes a bit (Harrison & O'Neill, 2000).
    Increase girl's attraction to guitar by observing female guitarist. Increase boy's attraction to piano by observing male pianist.

    HOWEVER, girl's attraction to piano decreased by observing male pianist and boy's attraction to guitar decreased by observing female guitarist. Girls may be more willing to consider a counter-stereotypical instrument than boys (Pickering & Repachili, 2001)
