This chapter explores the emotional ramifications of music for those whose abilities, interpretations, and response patterns differ dramatically from those of adults, notably infants and young children. It begins by describing musical elements in the infants' environment, which arise primarily from mothers' (or primary caregivers') speech and singing. It outlines differences in these modes of expression, their consequences for infants, and possible links to the origins of music. It also considers infants' responsiveness to aspects of non-vocal music that have affective consequences for adults.

Keywords:   music, infants, emotions, expression
