The Musical Experiences Project
As researchers and practitioners of K-12 music education, we are interested in the meaning of music in all peoples’ lives–the meanings of musical experiences that are central to being human. Understanding musical experiences is also a central tenet of our research center. To that purpose, we set out to do a project that was journalistic, such that we simply wanted to hear from ordinary individuals about their experience of music in their lives. The purpose of the “Musical Experiences Project” was to hear from of a variety of people on what music means to them.
