Abstract: This paper explores various aspects pertaining to self-concept, with a particular emphasis on self-efficacy and self-regulation and the impact that self-beliefs may have upon learning and achievement. Such beliefs can determine how much effort is applied and whether effort is maintained. It is well recognised that strategies for self-regulation can be developed and can assist with sustaining effort, particularly in the face of difficulties. Self efficacy beliefs and self-regulatory processes are strong factors that can be significant in how individuals choose tasks, persist with them, and achieve outcomes. Enjoyment is also a feature of the learning process which may be perceived as having a positive effect on achievement outcomes. As an area of the curriculum, Music provides many opportunities for students to be self-determined which may have the potential to transfer to other areas of learning. Teachers can assist students to develop self-regulatory strategies, and they can also plan learning, which seeks to optimize enjoyment in the learning process.
