Full Abstract: Presents the case of a 32 year-old male stutterer who also exhibited stuttering like behavior while playing the French horn. Effects of speech fluency targets on the playing and physiological and psychological correlates between the stutter in speech and the stuttering like behaviors when playing an instrument are discussed. A coordination difficulty may have been the common etiological factor underlying the problems in all three areas: speech development, fluency, and musical production. Daily speech therapy in conversation for one month significantly reduced the S's stuttering in conversation and musical playing.
