Learning strategies in instrumental music practice

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  01 November 1999


This case study of two organ students aims to identify learning strategies used in preparing a complex piece for performance. The results are based on data gathered from verbal reports given both during and after practice sessions. These sessions were also videotaped. The results show that the students used learning strategies to select and organise information and to integrate it with existing knowledge. In addition, they were systematic in their approaches to sorting the learning material.
