Music significantly shapes our daily lives, and we are surrounded with music every day. Level of attachment to music goes that far that young population in one study stated if on a Desert Island they would miss music the most (Bahanovich & Collopy, 2009). Music affects our identity creation, and it sends messages about us as people, i.e. what we listen may show who we really are. In younger age, music contributes to the level of acceptance and/or rejection of peers and music is considered being one of the key elements of life of youngsters. In more mature age, we still enjoy music by attending concerts, listening to music on the radio, and whether we know it or not, music is forming our daily lives.In schools, we take music classes meant to teach us how to appreciate music, and how to form a sense for aesthetics. Music is also often part of tourist offers where countries are presenting themselves as musical, and where they express pride for having high-class composers.

These and other issues are the subjects of discussion at our conference.
