Rapid development of music research lead into many interdisciplinary topics. These studies evoke music’s integration to many subjects, such as neuroscience. In neuroscience, music is being studied related to either its effect on cognitive process or cognitive process behind it. Previous researches suggested the difference between musicians and nonmusicians in terms of brain structure and brain activity. Instead of differentiate brain activity between musician and nonmusician, this present study aims to explain the different brain activity between two musical listeners regarding to their musical experience. Using EEG technique in experimental approach toward Piano students and Karawitan students (N=40), this study shows higher brain activity in listening to familiar music for both piano and Karawitan students. Moreover, the dominant brain activity happened in temporal lobe when subject listened to familiar music and frontal lobe when subject listened to unfamiliar music.
