Show Summary Details


Here, the aims of the book are revisited and conclusions drawn about the relevance of this research for educators, policy-makers and researchers. The chapter calls for recognition that the short-term, measurable outcomes of musical learning give only a partial picture of achievement and potential, and that lifelong engagement is a desirable outcome in which school opportunities and encouragement play a decisive role. The research methods are evaluated, along with their possible application across a wider range of musical lives.

Keywords: musical learning; achievement; potential; lifelong engagement; school opportunities; encouragement
