In this chapter we explore the assumptions and beliefs that underpin aesthetic listening. We then go on to explore the impact of aesthetic listening on music teaching and learning through analysing three hypothical examples of the way in which listening and appraising are taught in the music classroom. Following this, issues associated with the personal construction of musical meaning and appraisal responses other than verbal and written ones are considered. Finally, we suggest ways in which listening and appraising can be taught through integration with composing and performing activities.
