This chapter purposely leads the reader away from the notion that responding to music is simply a passive and scientific act of listening, where there is a correct response that can be expressed in words, towards considering response as a wide ranging and creative act. The chapter goes on to explore the pedagogical implications of a view of responding to music that embraces the social and the body across multimodal disciplines. The main aim is to consider the potential for such responses to be at the heart of musical experience in music education.
