An overarching goal of the book is to provide justification for the use of musical agency as an analytical tool and descriptor.
The project is also of interest also to researchers in the fields of cognitive science and social psychology, who may be interested in interdisciplinary research about how music affects the brain.
The book may also be of interest to social theorists, who investigate the relationship between agency, social practices, and human subjectivity.
It also bears non-specialists in mind and a significant portion is meant to be approachable by academics in any field as well as by many laypersons with a baccalaureate education.
