A description of the MUSIC® model was first published in an article by Brett Jones in 2009. This article is also available in Portuguese at the link below (Como motivar o envolvimento dos alunos na aprendizagem: Modelo de Motivacao Academica – MUSIC).

If you want a short, quick overview, please read the Overview of the MUSIC
® Model of Motivation, which is available at the link below as a PDF document.

To find teaching strategies directly linked to each of the five MUSIC components, you can look in my in my 2009 article or in my 2015 book, Motivating Students by Design: Practical Strategies for Professors.
Comments about the MUSIC model

The following statement is from a book commissioned by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities:

 “While academic motivation theories and practices abound, we believe the MUSIC model is especially useful…It is not only inclusive, evidence-based and research-validated, it is also versatile and applied─which makes it relatively straightforward, and therefore, easier to implement, either on campus or online.” (Aldridge & Harvatt, 2014, p. 54, Wired for success: Real-world solutions for transforming higher education, Washington, DC: American Association of State Colleges and Universities)
