GARCIA-DANTAS, Ana; GONZALEZ, Juan  and  GONZALEZ, Francisco. Psychological factors related to intent to leave the musical teaching of performance professional. CPD [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.1, pp.39-44. ISSN 1989-5879.

It´s presented a study to acknowledge psychological and demographic factors that influence on the professional learning abandon of the music. A sample of 113 students (54 females and 59 males, ranged 12 to 45 years old) from a music conservatoire answered the MMEPC questionnaire (García-Dantas & Caracuel, 2011). Results showed significant differences among females and males, thus women presented less perceived competence and higher activation levels than men. Intrinsic motivation, perceive competence and stress exert the greater impact on the dropping out intention. Psychological and educational interventions are expected to a) reduce the studied risk factors for a desadaptative abandon, b) enhance those factors which promote a greater adherence and enjoyment the learning of the music.

Keywords : dropping out; adherence; music; conservatoire; MMEPC.
