Abstract

In an educational setting, increasingly embracing innovative approaches to enhance student outcomes, the relationship between music engagement and individual work performance among Senior High School students stands as a compelling area of exploration. The purpose of this study is to investigate the correlation between music engagement and individual work performance, particularly among Senior High School students. Utilizing a conceptual framework that includes variables like emotional regulation and cognitive regulation for music engagement, and task performance scale and contextual performance scale for individual work performance, the research aims to unravel the intricate dynamics of this relationship. This study employs theories such as Cognitive Load Theory and Flow Theory to understand how music engagement can modulate cognitive load and foster the attainment of the "flow" state in the workplace or academic setting. The significance of this research lies in its potential to offer empirical insights that can guide strategies for optimizing work or academic performance through music engagement. The examination of the correlation between music engagement and individual work performance revealed a positive correlation with a Pearson correlation coefficient (r) of 0.33. This implies that as music engagement increases, there is a tendency for a parallel increase in individual work performance. The statistically significant p-value of less than .001 supports the rejection of the null hypothesis, indicating the presence of a meaningful but not strong positive relationship. The decision on significance, classified as weakly positive to moderately positive, aligns with the interpretation of correlation values, emphasizing the notable but not overpowering connection between music engagement and individual work performance. Based on the findings, it is recommended to incorporate music engagement strategies in educational settings, allowing students to leverage the potential benefits of music for improved work performance
