Formatted abstract
Queensland secondary music teachers are currently facing enormous challenges as they seek to fulfil syllabus requirements within the framework of recent governmental policy directives and guiding principles for education. Diminishing enrolments together with a perception that students are ill- equipped to enter tertiary music courses adds to the pressure on teachers to improve classroom practice.

At present, there is no uniformity in the methodological approach used to teach music in years 8-12. This is distinctly different from the experience of primary music teachers, who use a curriculum firmly based on a Kodály approach.

The adoption of a Kodály methodology for Queensland secondary schools may substantially help in redressing the problems currently being experienced, provided that the approach is appropriate for adolescents and can be justified in terms of syllabus requirements and the educational policies currently in operation.

This study looks at the cognitive psychological foundations of the Kodály methodology and examines the extent to which it can meet the educational needs of adolescents, while at the same time fulfilling policy goals and syllabus requirements.
