Abstract
In a number of novels for young adults, the apparently gender-free act of performing music is connected surprisingly often with concepts of gender. How do these works define and encourage the construction of subjectivity, particularly male subjectivity? What does the connection between gender and music tell us about conceptions of gender, and what does it tell us about conceptions of music?
