A growing body of research has begun to examine music investment and well-being; yet very little has considered how best to promote life-long investment in music. This presentation will present findings from an Australian Research Council funded discovery project that focused on generating knowledge about how and why we should invest in music-making to promote well-being. In particular, by drawing on quantitative and qualitative analyses, these findings concern differentiating the psychosocial variables related to continuing versus ceasing musical participation, exploring the reasons why people cease their participation and how to re-engage them in participating, and how participating in musical activities influences perceived well-being.
