This article discusses how music educators serve community music (CM) functions and CM facilitators serve music education functions. A key community role of music educators is to help students develop the musical skills, knowledge, habits, and dispositions to engage musically throughout life. A key music education role of CM facilitators is to help musicians in CM settings develop similar attributes, as well as fostering the types of ensembles and musical experiences in which people of various ages and social and economic strata can engage.
