This article reports findings arising from a research project addressing the development and implementation
of eighteen learning centres in music education in a Tasmanian Department of Education (DoE) school in regional northern Tasmania in 2007. Learning centres in music education are separate spaces in the classroom in which students engage individually or in small groups in self-regulated musical learning. Literature related to learning centres are reviewed, an exemplar learning centre is presented, the methodology of the project is outlined, data from the project are discussed, and conclusions drawn. The paper offers an initial perspective to inform further research into this under-utilised strategy.
