The experience of music is rich for the conductor/teacher, performer, and audience. In this chapter, the model of instrumental ensemble classes including the role of the conductor/teacher as it has evolved over time is reviewed. The experience of music is described from the point of view of the student performer and the audience. While the audience focuses on the performance of the music, the musical listening experience is different for the performer, who is involved with the listening and experiencing of music while creating the sounds. The implications for music education of this unique performing role are suggested, including recommendations for purposeful inclusion of listening for musical experience in the performance ensemble class.
