One of the distinctive features of the current longitudinal study is a tracing of many points along musical lifelines from childhood to early adulthood. This has allowed researchers to identify specific developmental periods where participants' musical learning appears most influential or most open to change. This chapter draws upon the many varied developmental periods that have emerged during the musical lives of music learners, and relates these to the extensive theoretical explanations offered throughout the text as a means of framing more generalizable hypothesizes about musical development.
