This chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to investigate the gamut of achievements of the Western music learner from continuous to sporadic, from persisting to quitting. It then discusses popular views of musical abilities in Western contexts; and reconciles specialization, amateuring, and music in everyday life. The discussion then presents a background of the current study.

Keywords:   western music, music students, musical abilities
