This report details an intervention study that I undertook with a group of students and their teacher in a Secondary school in England. 14-15 year old students were systematically taught several strategies for improving their listening skills, including using computers. Pre- and post- tests show a marked increase in scores. However, qualitative data show that students used haphazard approaches, rather than the systematic approach they were taught. This study suggests that intervention studies might generate sophisticated understandings of students’ learning strategies in music
