Abstract: The state of musical arts education in Nigerian schools is worsening despite considerable attention by numerous concerned scholars. Appraisal of conclusions from available literature shows very little empirical evidences to back up scholars’ assertions as well as lack of strategic models to critically assess level of severity of the problems confronting music education at different educational levels. Using PASMAE”sMAT cell project guidelines, this paper uses case studies of secondary schools in Oyo geographical zone to critically assess the problems associated with musical arts education in Nigerian institutions. It also offers some suggestions to tackle them and advocates for the development of organized assessment/ analytical framework (possibly an adoption or contextual adaptation of the MAT cell guidelines) as a vital step towards developing paradigms for purposeful interventions.
