Older people have shown a growing interest in cultural activities in recent years. In Germany, the disciplines Music Geragogy and Elementary Music Pedagogy have reacted to this trend and started to integrate the topic ‘Music making in old age’ into (further) education programmes. This article presents these initiatives and their links to Community Music. As for the future, the international discourse concerning these three approaches should produce important stimuli for the didactic and methodological fundamentals of the topic ‘Music making in old age’, in both theory and practice.
