Experiences during childhood
This chapter presents a selection of accounts of strong experiences with music during childhood (here defined as up to thirteen years of age). The accounts illustrate different aspects of early strong experiences with music and what these came to mean. They have been grouped together under the following themes: security/safety and closeness; absorbed, moved, in wonderment, struck, overwhelmed; music for the first time; listening over and over again; strong experiences with music on special days; singing or playing music oneself; other special childhood experiences.
