London, Jan 10 (ANI): The BBC, along with the researchers at Goldsmiths College in London, is conducting a nationwide experiment in the UK to find out whether personality or practise creates great musicians.

The 'How Musical Are You?' test is being launched to tie in with Radio 3's 12-day celebration of the music of Mozart, reports the Scotsman.

Radio 3 has teamed up with academics to examine whether it is years of piano, violin and recorder lessons or inherent characteristics that make people great musicians.

Experts from Goldsmiths believe that people's listening habits and their emotional connection with music could predict whether or not they have untapped musical ability.

"This is a chance for everyone who enjoys music of whatever genre to find out more about their own capacity for engaging with music," said Radio 3 controller Roger Wright. (ANI)
