Studies show that music plays an important role throughout our lives, and that typically the impact is affective rather than intellectual, with the widest range of benefits accruing to those who actively participate in making music. Adult participation is an extension of engagement with active music making in childhood in the home or at school. Accordingly, the musical education offered during compulsory schooling should, at least in part, be concerned with inculcating a love of music. This chapter reviews the research evidence considering: the aims and provision of music education; opportunities for experiencing and expressing emotion in music education; students' affective experiences in music education; teaching to generate positive affective outcomes; the benefits of a greater emphasis on the emotions in music education; and directions for future research.

Keywords:   music education, music, emotion, affective experience
