Through the phenomenological research method, this thesis asks, what can we learn about leadership from music? A review of literature providing links between the two subjects is presented in the Literature Review. Concepts of aesthetic education and experience are presented as significant links between music and leadership. The researher's own experiences are also discussed. The thesis body explores how leadership theories and leadership characteristics apply to ensembles, performance and the director. The relationship between music subjects, performers and audiences are discussed through historical examples. The conclusion addresses the thesis question, "what can we learn about leadership from music?"
