This study examines episodic memories of participation in music performance classes. Ten adults were asked to name a memorable experience from their secondary school music class. They were also asked about their enjoyment within the class, memory of the instructional material (music), and their current musical endeavors. Results showed all adults enjoyed their experience within their music performance class, but only one currently performs on their instrument. Very few participants remembered specific instructional material. All memorable experiences involved a strong emotion. Further research is needed to examine the classroom experience as a whole, beyond retention of instructional material.
