Intergenerational Learning in a High School Environment
Alfano, Christopher J.
International Journal of Community Music, v1 n2 p253-266 May 2008
Active living and continuing learning are important to the well-being of seniors.

This article explores one such project where seniors learning alongside adolescents work together in music performance, creating new types of relationships and learning practices.
