Abstract and Keywords

This article explores the reasons behind music instructors' failure to openly acknowledge the emotional aspect of music. Perhaps emotions are private matters, not to be discussed in public; or inappropriate subject matter for a university course unless presented in the context of medicine and illness. These issues are considered due to efforts currently underway around the world to revise a number of national curricula. The article also discusses how the emotional aspects of music can be included in a curriculum.

Keywords: music education, emotions, music curricula
