Green, Susan K.; Hale, Connie L.

Orienting musical instructional practices around classroom elements suggested by achievement goal theory can foster lifelong musical connections. Practices related to using meaningful and challenging tasks, evaluations that decrease emphasis on competition and emphasize effort and enjoyment, and allowing students to participate in decision making are advocated and described.
