Title: "On Identifying a Common Goal Between Musicians and Scientists"

The aim of this article is to identify a common goal between musicians and scientists. Our analysis ends on a positive note suggesting that the "gap" between the two, so to say, exists only in the nature of the paths undertaken. There is hardly any gap so far as the goal is concerned. This realization, which I believe will be helpful in bringing scientists and musicians together thereby raising the standard of music appreciation, music therapy and music-learning, bears a sure relevance in the context of those developing countries such as India to which this author belongs where music therapy is not yet an established profession, nor is scientific research in music as popular as in the west.
