Opportunities and Outcomes in Lifelong Musical Engagement

Opportunities and Outcomes in Lifelong Musical Engagement

(p.122) 5 Opportunities and Outcomes in Lifelong Musical Engagement
Chances and Choices

Stephanie E. Pitts

Oxford University Press

Here the life history respondents’ musical experiences as adults are the starting point for an analysis of their varied routes into lifelong musical engagement. The perspectives of teachers, performers, adult learners and concert-goers are considered, although a search for trends in their experiences reveals only the idiosyncrasy of musical chances and choices. The case is made for greater recognition of the rich layer of music-making which lies outside the professional sphere, with music in worship, community settings and private homes providing examples of fulfilling musical lives.

Keywords:   lifelong engagement, adult learners, performers, teachers, listeners, music in worship
