Woody's Misconceptions Put to Ease

Robert Woody takes five frequet misconceptions and puts them to ease with his dual explanations of "Element of Truth" and "Informed Perspective." Topics such as "Scientific study of music diminishes it's magic" and "The artificial enviornment of a research experiment is nothing like a real-life music classroom" are remedied with two explinations; one of which says that there is truth in the statement, and the other saying that there's a bit of a perspective. Both answers, by default and writer's choice, lead to the ultimate "Yes and No". The 'misconceptions' include the following; "Research adresses esoteric topics that most music teachers wouldn't be interested in", "Scientific study of music diminishes it's magic", "There are some things in music that cannot be measured by research", "The artificial enviornment of a research experiment is nothing like a real-life music classroom", and "Statistics can be used to prove anything."

Ooooo I want to read it. It makes me want to know what the "five frequent misconceptions" are about. I like it because you do let us know what the article is about, but yet you kinda of leave the paragraph as a cliff hanger. That's just me though...

Maybe instead of using only quotes as the misconceptions, maybe explain them in your own words.

It was really hard for me to follow/understand what the article was about. The use of all quotation definitely made it difficult for me to read you abstract smoothly.

I like that you put the 5 misconceptions in the abstract, but I agree with Anna that the quotes make it confusing.

As pointed out by TheloniousFunk, it is very rare to include quotes in an abstract. Paraphrase topic titles for the five misconceptions.
