This book deals with music as a life time companion that serves several functions across the life span. The combination of music with age includes music practice, music listening, music therapy and music education. The contributions clarify the relations between music education, music animation and music therapy. They deal with music in a medical and in a geriatric environment. They give impressing insights about music therapy that helps people to die in dignity. An innovative form of therapy illustrates how music can be beneficial in relation to pain. Two contributions give examples of music education and its challenges for elderly people in proposing didactic models and in highlighting how choir singing becomes a matter of informal learning for seniors.
