Abstract

Lifetime experiences in music, whether good or bad, can still have a positive influence in developing inclusive approaches to music teaching. This study is a self –reflective look at how such childhood to adulthood experiences helped shape an approach to music teaching that enabled successful music making in the general classroom. An approach towards developing positive, inclusive and enjoyable music experiences for primary school students.
