Correlation Study between Internalization of Extrinsic Motivation and Self-Determination in Learning for Taiwan Music Students
The investigator with years of musical instruction experiences found that intrinsic motivation is the key factor to achieve high quality of work for music students. Therefore， how to promote intrinsic motivation for students and how to help students to realize， control and justify the internalization of extrinsic motivation are important issues for music teachers. This work conducts a qualitative investigation and shows the following outcome. Music students in Taiwan during their learning activities feel limited and unable to generate their self-determination as well as to reveal their music abilities. The intrinsic motivation in their music careers can then be declined. In musical education， how to help students to internalize their learning motivation through external control or socialization and to create their self-determination through the internalization process is the first important thing. Secondly， with the specific learning experiences， the musical potential development and guidance in the childhood is so crucial as to increase the individual music ability. Therefore， students can gain good music ability and handle their musical activities properly as well as promote their intrinsic motivation. The two issues are quite correlated and have important implications for Taiwan music students in the stages of their intrinsic learning and musical achievement.
