Music for Life

This chapter offers suggestions for actions based on the new mindset presented in the previous chapter. School teachers and administrators should maintain an open mind to support innovative approaches that allow mixed grade and intergenerational music activities. A variety of music programs should be offered within and outside of educational institutions. Music educators should make every effort to connect musical experiences to lives outside of the classrooms, beyond the school schedule and beyond the schooling years. Support and encouragement of family members are crucial in a lifetime of musical experiences. For senior citizens’ service providers, regular musical participation opportunities in various musical styles should be available for the long term, as well as musical activities that help to connect with senior citizens’ inner selves, others, and their past, present, and future lives. Music education for life is advocated.

Keywords:   beyond the schooling years, connect musical experiences, family members, lifetime of musical experiences, new mindset, music education for life, music educators, regular musical participation, service providers, variety of music programs
