The Development of Zheng Practice Program Based on Self-regulated Learning Strategies

Xinning Wu, Yong-Chil Yang


An effective music practice of a musical instrument can be attained over the use of self-regulated learning strategies. Musicians often use self-regulated learning strategies in their practice sessions. Similarly, a string instrument can be linked with self-regulated learning, when it comes to its posture, tone production, bowing, and fingering features with various tuning potentials. In our study, we discussed the use of a string instrument for self-regulated learning. We developed a practice program for a string instrument called Zheng in three steps. In the first step, self-regulated learning strategies for the Zheng practice program were derived by surveying the existing literature. In the second step, the Zheng practice model was developed. Finally, the 20 hours Zheng practice program was developed by means of self-regulated learning strategies. The outcomes of the program can be useful for novice learners who are interested to improve their string instrument practice.
