AbstractMemorable musical experiences in childhood can influence life-long attitudes about the role and importance of music. Research with adult non-musicians indicates that their most significant memories of early musical experiences were those that engaged them in many modes: songs that were humorous, that generated physical activity and dance, that were borrowed from the popular media, or that were part of a public performance. Recent discoveries in the field of neuroscience support the understanding that experiences are more memorable and significant when multiple areas of the brain are involved.
