The First International Workshop on Motor Learning for Music Performance (MOTION2017) investigates the links between music performance training and motor performance features, in order to design systems and interfaces supporting learning of both traditional and novel music instruments. The quality of the motor performance is of great importance in music training, especially in learning how to play a music instrument. This indeed requires accurate movements of the limbs and of the body, fine-grained control of posture, and a high biomechanical efficiency. Moreover, a wrong training approach may cause mechanical problems developing into injuries and levels of excess tension that restrict freedom of movement. Finally, it is well-known that movement and gesture play a major role as conveyors of expressive content in music performance. The workshop represents an occasion to meet and discuss motor performance in music instrument training under different perspectives with a multidisciplinary approach. The goal is to discuss current research, to identify research challenges, to show results, and to foster collaborations. The workshop is partially supported by the EU-H2020-ICT Project TELMI.
