Abstract [en]

This study focuses on how song teachers, who work in culture schools, high schools and other artistic educations describe the methods which they use for group lessons with the students. Furthermore the study looks at the advantages and disadvantages the teachers experience with this form of teaching. The study presents in which way other scientists and teachers have described advantages and/or disadvantages with group lessons in singing and which frames matter to their experiences. The study contains qualitative interviews with five song teachers, who all have different experiences of this form of teaching. The teacher’s service contains room for different types of basic level education and to separate the frames such as resources and educational rules.The picture painted by the teachers matches the literature and previous studies within the subject. Everyone agrees that there are a lot of advantages with group lessons but many of the song teachers and scientists say, at the same time, that it works as a compliment to individual teaching in song. The teachers say that a lot of lectures, traditionally taught individually, can be approached in a different way with group lessons. They also says that social skills, communication, interpretation, adaptation, cooperation and connection to the audience are skills which is particularly well taught in groups. Group dynamics and the teachers approach is of great importance when it comes to how effective the group works together and which norms and values are contained within the group. The teachers interviewed in this study points out that the students take bigger responsibility to their own learning when taught in groups as a consequence of respecting their fellow students, which previous scientist also has pointed out. The importance of interaction between students and to be part of bigger context is also mentioned. This matches the music scene in society by large which is riddled with responsibility, interaction and enjoying time together with the aid of music.
