Abstract Music education has, for many years, championed methods that reinforce traditional modes of transmission, namely individual tuition, ensemble experiences and classroom teaching. This paper re-examines the notion of lifelong learning in music education. In so doing, it examines formal and informal modes of transmission in music education with specific examples from conservatoriums, education faculties and private providers. It takes account opportunities available for music teaching and learning in preschool, school-age education, tertiary, professional development and other forms of continuous education. Examples of best practice are included, along with suggestions for improvements in the way in which music education is approached. In detailed terms, the paper traces options for music education from birth into later life describing new ways of addressing the notion of flexible learning. Furthermore, means of engaging the disengaged are pursued, particularly with a view to finding equitable ways of involving marginal members of the community.
