The narratives presented here demonstrate the diverse ways in which music threads through and thrives in lived experience. The accompanying commentaries offer possible readings and point to the potential of these particular narratives to provoke or trouble. But troubling is a troubling matter, uncertain and unpredictable, as individual as each participant, researcher, and reader, and inseparable (in some ways) from positionality and place. Clandinin points to the ways in which the accounts presented here begin to shift the dominant narrative of music education from the subject matter of music to the starting point of lives (this volume, p. 203).
