In the last ten chapters the interviewees have generously told us something of what music means for each of them. This is not a scientific enquiry research project, nor are the reflections in this chapter psychotherapeutic case study ana­ lyses, so how might we understand something of what we have been told? Each account has been partly autobiographical and a personal history of how the experience of listening to music has been different for each of them at different periods of their lives.
