The literature study will identify existing research on questions concerning the development and existence of musical ability. For example, is it necessary to study many hours a day at a young age or is it necessary to start as early as possible with music instruction in order to become a professional performer? This is done by reviewing and discussing contemporary literature on music education, music psychology, musical development and musical expertise. An attempt will also be made to identify any differences in existing research between the situations of musicians in classical and in popular music.
