Chapter 25 Music-Making as a Lifelong Development and Resource for Health
Music, Health, and Wellbeing

This chapter has two main topics: Firstly, music-making (in terms of singing and playing instruments) is described as an activity that has to be seen in the context of the general human (musical) development and that is subject to specific changes during the course of life. Secondly, the connection between music-making and health is portrayed as an interaction in which music affects health and vice versa, music-making exerts an influence on health. The effects and the extent of this interaction depend largely on the kind and context of music-making.

Keywords:   music-making, musical development, health, musicians
