This chapter reflects upon the young musicians initially surveyed and the research evidence discussed along the way. It examines these early theorizations and predictions in light of the current lives of these participants based on longitudinal data that has permitted researchers to trace them, some eleven to fourteen years after their first interviews, depending on individual participants and the number of follow-up interviews after a survey that was administered in 2008. Through a survey, interviews, and some observations, a descriptive profile of the participants' musical lives was developed: the length of time they were or are still engaged in music activities, the reasons why they ceased or continued playing, the nature of their ongoing musical experiences, what they had taken from their previous music learning experiences and their beliefs about music and music education.
