In Rethinking Piano Performance: The Mindful Body (2018), author Cristine MacKie supplants the traditional mind/body dualistic approach to piano teaching and performing, asserting instead that, since the recent advances in the development of technological tools – by means of which neuroscientists have been able to uproot those conceptual dualities – the mind is the site of mental phenomena and is fully embodied.
