Abstract

This address will outline results from two large research projects that were undertaken with Australian school children. The intention is to discuss the role of personal beliefs in music teaching and learning, by explaining some of the more important motivational and self-regulatory mechanisms that impact on students' progress. An aim of the presentation will be to describe the beliefs and attitudes that allow children to become self-regulated and to gain the necessary skills to monitor and control their own cognitions. Implications for curriculum develop and for teaching at all levels will form the last part of the presentation. Copyright © 2003 The Hong Kong Institute of Education.
