Abstract: It is probably true that more people in Western countries play musical instruments during their adolescent years than during any other decade of life. It is self-evident that adolescents are the next generation of professional performers, teachers, and creators of music. Yet little attention has been paid to the issues that arise from the juxtaposition of this tumultuous time of life and the demands placed on the developing instrumental musician. The purpose of this paper is to review the three phases of adolescence and examine what we know about the problems faced by young musicians during this crucial phase of their growth and development.
