Abstract: The current research examined Chinese parents motivation regarding music training for their children, and its relationships with their childrens learning outcomes (N = 269). Results of principal component analysis showed that Chinese parents had both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation regarding childrens music training. Parents intrinsic motivation was positively related to childrens learning achievement (rated by teachers). Although extrinsic motivation did not predict learning achievement, it served as a significant moderator and strengthened the relationship between intrinsic motivation and childrens achievement. Moreover, the results showed that childrens learning engagement mediated the interaction between intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation regarding childrens learning achievement. The corresponding moderated mediation model was supported. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
