Eight papers from a 1983 symposium of music educators and psychologists summarize current knowledge and theory in motivation and creativity and apply this research to the teaching and learning of music at all levels. Emphasis is on practical implications for music teachers in day to day instruction. Topics addressed in the papers are: task involvement in music (John Nicholls), developing continuing interest in music (Martin Maehr), developing creativity through music education (Stanley Gryskiewicz), the step-path theory (Joel Raynor), creativity and talent (Michael Wallach), children's motivation to study music (Jacquelynne Eccles), aesthetic properties of musical compositions (Dean Keith Simonton), reasons students opt to drop musical instruction (Martin Covington), and creativity and problem-solving (Donald Treffinger). A summary section reviews symposium findings and major themes. A list of symposium participants concludes the proceedings. (LP)
