Abstract and Keywords

Recent research has recognized the complexity of musical motivation and several models have been developed which take account of that complexity. This chapter sets out a model which integrates the various theoretical approaches to understanding motivation embedded within a broadly systemic approach. In addition, the model recognizes the importance of cognitive factors and self-determination in behavior, while also taking account of the power of the emotions. The evidence relating to the various elements of the model is considered. The chapter also sets out the need for research which explores issues of motivation in different learning contexts, informal and formal, for learners of different ages, across different types of music, for those whose engagement with music is through listening and why music plays no part in the lives of some people.

Keywords: music, motivation, meta-cognition, self-determination, environmental factors, self-beliefs
