Sean Hutchins, Ph.D.

Sean Hutchins received his Ph.D. from McGill University in 2008, studying the implicit memory for music and its role in production responses with Prof. Caroline Palmer. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow at BRAMS with Prof. Isabelle Peretz from 2008 to 2012, studying the perception and production of the human voice. His research deals with issues such as the causes of poor singing, the imitation of speech prosody, the dissociation between pitch perception and production abilities, ERP evidence for pitch perception, and structural and functional neural correlates of pitch perception and production. Sean has presented talks on the psychology of singing and the relationship between language and music, as well as workshops on the advanced uses of Microsoft Excel for research purposes. In 2012, he joined the Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest.

Currently, Dr. Sean Hutchins is the Director of Research for The Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.
