Abstract
This article considers four learning biographies from professional musicians. Each musician holds a different portfolio career and is from a different age category. The key questions I ask are: ‘How does one learn as a musician?’, ‘What knowledge, attitudes, values and artistic skills are necessary to function effectively and creatively as a contemporary musician?’, and ‘What is the necessary framework of lifelong learning in music education?’ My findings are analysed in the light of lifelong learning for musicians with a focus toward teaching and learning.
