Abstract [en]

This essay highlights the relationship between the motivational factors for singing develop- ment and improvisation, as a notion and an instrument. I have implemented qualitative interviews and observations with students and teachers. In my observations I conducted two types of improvisation exercises with the students. The study links to the school curriculum and to teachers assignments. The interview with students shows results of that there is a problem in how students have a fear of making mistakes. The concept of sound in an unsightly way and wrong becomes a rhe- torical problem as it is often not clear to the students what the term means and as an obstacle to develop in their instrument. The interviews I had with vocal teachers show that everyone has formed a personal relationship with their methods to teach and the importance of being flexible and constantly have an open mind to learn and reflect on their professional roles. Students linked the concept of improvisation to making up as you go, making melodies and different sounds. Improvisation was used as a tool to write songs, increase self-confidence and develop your musical identity. In my practical implementation with students they de- scribed most of the students feeling nervous before doing the excises. When they did not know what to expect or what was to expect of them. But everyone took the chance to try something that they had not tried before and the majority had a positive feeling afterwards. They described it with words like: fun, uplifting, nice to sing freely, hard to know where to start, focusing, calming.
