ABSTRACT
It is a well-known fact that schenkerian principles of analysis and musical thinking open comprehensions of the musical works that are not reachable by using other methods of analysis. Breaking a piece down into manageable fragments and identifying strategies for sight reading, learning and memorizing are steps that have to be identified and completed that could be possibly leading to the development of the brain functions that are essential to instrument playing but also for the cognitive control of behavior. The structural analysis offers the awareness and the self-monitoring that can help in this matter. A musician who understands the effects and functions will reveal the richness of the analysis in the performance of the work.

Keywords: schenkerian analysis, executive functions of the brain, cognitive flexibility, memory, inhibitory control
