In music education, students faced challenges in completing their degree because of the many underlying factors that affect their learning in music. This descriptive-correlational study was conducted to determine the level of teachers’ music competence, school facilities and curriculum, students’ workloads and tenacity, and the significant difference between the music competency level across the demographic profile and across variables. Results showed that all three factors were satisfactory and students’ music competency was good. Moreover, it was also found that there was no significant difference between the music competency level and the demographic profile of students in terms of age, sex, and year level. However, there was a significant relationship between the teacher and school factors vs. the music competency level while there was no significant relationship between student factors vs. the music competency level. It indicated that the teacher and the school played very important role in the progress of the student in music education.
