Abstract: The study is all about incorporating music (science pop-tunes) in teaching science subject and observing its effect on the academic performance of the participants. 44 grade 9 pupils divided into control and experimental groups participated in the study. The study used quasi-experimental research design and data retrieval technique. Data analysis involved the use of frequency count, mean, standard deviation and t-test. Results revealed that the pretests of both groups were the same and the test of difference was found not significant. On the contrary, the result of post-test of both groups yielded gain scores to both group of participants. However, the experimental group had a significantly higher mean in the gain score. The result exhibited that the intervention significantly improved the academic performance of the science students. Hence, teaching science lessons to pupils through the traditional learning method had a minimal effect in improving pupil’s academic performance while integrating science pop-tunes combo during the course of instruction significantly dis-played better academic performance.
